Causes of Shoulder Pain

The shoulder works with surrounding muscles and tendons to allow for a broad range of motion in the arm. Because of the shoulder’s design, our arms can rotate, push, pull, and lift objects overhead with relative ease. Because we rely on the shoulder for daily movements, wear and tear in the shoulder can often lead to painful shoulder injuries. The most common injury that people are concerned about are tears in the rotator cuff.

Typical causes of shoulder pain are overuse and trauma. These occur frequently during activities like weightlifting, football, or gymnastics. Common conditions include bursitis, rotator cuff tendonitis/tears, and shoulder impingement.

Most causes of shoulder pain fall into these two categories:

  • Joint Dislocation
  • Fracture
  • Ligament or muscle tear

Shoulder Pain Symptoms

Symptoms vary depending on the type of shoulder injury. Shoulder injuries will restrict your mobility and likely cause pain when lifting weights or applying pressure. Typically, an injury to the shoulder will be painful and easily aggravated by movement.

Depending on your condition, you may experience any of the following symptoms:

• Dull, aching pain that worsens with activity
• Stiffness or reduced mobility
• Difficulty sleeping
• An audible clicking sound from the shoulder
• Pain or difficulty raising your arms
• Tenderness to the touch
• Pain that may radiate toward the neck or down the front of the arm
• Swelling, bruising, or redness


Surgery is not always necessary for shoulder pain. In many cases, conservative treatments such as physical therapy, medication, and lifestyle modifications can effectively manage shoulder pain. Airrosti has treated over 200,000 shoulder cases using its unique conservative treatment programs. However, surgery may be recommended for certain conditions that do not respond to conservative treatments or when there is significant damage to the shoulder joint.

Medications commonly used to treat shoulder pain include over-the-counter pain relievers such as ibuprofen or acetaminophen to reduce inflammation and alleviate discomfort. In some cases, prescription medications such as muscle relaxants or corticosteroid injections may be recommended to manage more severe pain and inflammation.

It’s generally safe to take medications for shoulder pain, but it’s important to use them as directed by your healthcare provider. Over-the-counter pain relievers such as ibuprofen or acetaminophen can help reduce inflammation and alleviate discomfort. However, if you have any underlying health conditions or are taking other medications, it’s important to consult with your doctor before starting any new medication regimen. Additionally, prescription medications such as muscle relaxants or corticosteroid injections may be recommended for more severe cases of shoulder pain under the supervision of a healthcare professional. 94% of Airrosti patients report that after treatment they have reduced or eliminated the need for pain medications.

Yes, there are several self-care techniques and exercises that can help relieve shoulder pain. These may include gentle stretching exercises to improve flexibility, strengthening exercises to stabilize the shoulder joint, and applying ice or heat to reduce inflammation and alleviate discomfort. Additionally, maintaining good posture and avoiding activities that exacerbate shoulder pain can also be beneficial. Airrosti providers design customized exercise programs to speed your recovery and keep your pain from returning.

While it’s important to avoid activities that aggravate shoulder pain, completely restricting all activity may not be necessary. In many cases, modifying activities to reduce strain on the shoulder joint and incorporating rest breaks can help alleviate symptoms. However, if shoulder pain persists or worsens with activity, it’s important to consult with a healthcare professional for proper evaluation and guidance on activity modification.
