Why Your Shoulder Hurts & What You Can Do To Fix It?

The shoulder joint is shallow (not deep). As such, it needs lots and lots of ligaments to hold it in place. The shallow shoulder joint (the glenohumeral joint), encapsulated ligaments (ligaments that surround the joint to make it stable), and the rotator cuffs (shoulder muscles) provide the shoulder better ranges of movement (mobility) than any other joint.

Shoulder pain results from injuries, overuse, or premature degenerative changes in shoulder muscles, ligaments, & joints of the shoulder. Improper lifting, poor sleeping posture, and aggressive exercise programs are the leading cause of pain in the shoulder.

Can Pain Medication & Supplements Fix Shoulder Pain?

There are no pills, vitamins, or injections that repair tissue damage! Medication can help decrease symptoms and reduce swelling, but it will not fix or repair the damage. Supplements and vitamins can help provide nutrients to damaged tissues. However, supplements or vitamins without comprehensive corrective care are a waste of time! Steroid injections reduce swelling and numb the area for a while. But, in reality, steroid injections do more harm, and we cover this in later sections.

The first step toward recovery is an accurate diagnosis. Identification of causes leading to a painful shoulder is also essential, as it will help you avoid recurrent aches or repeated injuries. To fully recover, you need holistic therapy options for the injured or degenerative tissues. Holistic shoulder pain treatments are comprehensive. In other words, they are multi-faceted (treatment with many different aspects) to heal soft tissue, cartilage, and joints of the shoulder.

Cause & Treatment Options For A Painful Shoulder

Shoulder pain can affect anyone at any time. The young, middle-aged, and elderly are all at risk without immunity! The reason being is that the shoulder joint is the most mobile and active joint of the body. No other joint in the body has the same level of mobility as the shoulder.

Unfortunately, all that flexibility and motion comes with an increased risk of injury and pain. Pain in the shoulder caused by injury or damage of the joints, joint capsule, muscles, tendons, or ligaments is treatable. This article provides an in-depth description of causes, symptoms, self-help tips, and corrective shoulder pain treatment in Malaysia for faster recovery.

What Caused My Shoulder To Hurt?

The humerus, scapula, and clavicle are the three main bones that make up the shoulder joint. These bones are held together via an intricate connection of ligaments supported and mobilized by muscles and tendons. A disruption in the integrity, normal functioning, or alignment of any of the tissues, including the joint capsule, can lead to a painful and debilitating condition including:

Frozen Shoulder: It refers to a progressive condition whose exact cause is unclear. The shoulder joint comprises numerous diverse structures. As a person ages, these surrounding tissues lose their flexibility and become increasingly tight and painful, reducing the range of motion, hence the term frozen shoulder. Our shoulder treatment of a frozen shoulder can repair the damaged tissues without injections or surgery.

Pinched Nerves: Compression of the nerves in the cervical spine and pectoral region of the chest is a known factor in shoulder pain. Compression of nerves due to neck pain or injuries, cervical bone spurs, spondylosis, slip-disc (herniated discs or bulging discs), and thoracic outlet syndrome cervical and spondylolisthesis are among the leading causes of nerve impingements that cause shoulder pain.

Shoulder Impingement Syndrome: It usually occurs after repeated overhead activity such as swimming or weightlifting. The shoulder tendons get impinged between the bones that comprise the shoulder joint, making it painful to move the arm.

What Is Frozen Shoulder?

As mentioned, the frozen shoulder is descriptive of stiffness, pain, and reduced shoulder mobility.

There are two forms of frozen shoulder, primary frozen shoulder, and secondary frozen shoulder. Primary frozen shoulder is descriptive of true adhesive capsulitis. A secondary frozen shoulder refers to a frozen shoulder. Primary adhesive capsulitis is harder to treat than secondary adhesive capsulitis or true frozen shoulder.

What Is The Best Shoulder Pain Treatment For A Frozen Shoulder?

True or primary adhesive capsulitis results from diseases, disorders, or a separate illness. In other words, conditions such as diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, heart disease, or Parkinson’s result in shoulder pain felt in primary adhesive capsulitis. However, we must mention that shoulder surgery is perhaps the most common cause of primary adhesive capsulitis.

The secondary type of frozen shoulder is the easier one to manage. It is also the type for which should surgery is recommended. 

True frozen shoulder or secondary adhesive capsulitis is due to degenerative changes or injury of the shoulder joints, muscles, tendons, ligaments, or bursae, classified as rotator cuff syndrome, tendon, and bursitis

Best Shoulder Pain Treatment In Malaysia

The treatment of shoulder pain depends on the cause of the problem. However, the best treatment option for a painful or injured shoulder is conservative care repairing the damaged tissue. Shoulder surgery or steroidal injections are best to avoid. As mentioned, shoulder surgery is a common cause of chronic shoulder pain (adhesive capsulitis). Corrective targeted treatment from our chiropractors, physiotherapists, and advanced shoulder therapy technology and devices get you better faster. The best home remedy for shoulder pain is rest, avoiding aggravating activities, and icing the injured part. 

Rest: It might not be an obvious remedy, but many people underestimate the importance of rest in the process of healing. It would help if you avoided overhead activities while your shoulder heals. However, it would be best to exercise caution when you rest the joint since prolonged immobilization may cause a frozen shoulder.

Ice Packs & Heat Pads: Some of the most commonly used treatments for shoulder pain are heat pads and ice packs. However, they should be used correctly to avoid making your symptoms worse. If you are not sure where to use ice or heat, ask our chiropractor.

Medication: Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medication can offer some limited benefits for tendonitis, bursitis, and arthritis. Our chiropractor may also recommend some natural alternatives. Still, it is essential to be aware of the possible side effects of using medication to treat your symptoms for a long time.

Surgeon preparing for shoulder surgery for shoulder pain

Published Research: Avoid Steroid Injections At All Costs!

Orthopedic surgeons may recommend steroidal injections or shoulder surgery for shoulder pain. As a general rule, invasive procedures should be your last option. And steroid injections should never be given for any joint, and that includes the shoulder joint.

Corticosteroid injections are more harmful. It weakens the joints, ligaments, cartilage, muscles, and bones. Don't just take our word for it; read what a 2019 published report says about corticosteroid injections. The report was such an eye-opener that CNN provided public notice of the harmful impacts of steroid injections.

The published research was first published in the Journal of Radiology. It reported severe joint damage, including infections, fractures, and death of bones, soft tissues, and cartilage. So, if your surgeon offers you a steroid injection, dismiss it. Seek conservative treatments.

In short, consider them if our corrective physiotherapy and chiropractic treatments fail to address and relieve your shoulder pain adequately. Our clinical team's clinical success rate in treating shoulder pain is better than 95%. In short, we rarely fail!

Therefore, we encourage patients to avoid injections or surgery. Instead, we encourage non-surgical shoulder pain treatment.
