Shoulder Pain Q & A

What is shoulder pain?

Your shoulder is made up of many different muscles, ligaments, tendons, and bones, which allow for a wide range of motion. Any of these bones or soft tissues can be the cause of your shoulder pain.

Dr. Roofian offers a variety of treatment solutions designed to treat your temporary or chronic shoulder pain at its source.

What causes shoulder pain?

Shoulder pain is typically the result of one of three primary conditions:


The most common type of arthritis that produces shoulder pain is osteoarthritis. This degenerative condition develops slowly and is due to natural wear and tear, overuse from sports or physical activities, or an injury.

Injured tendons

Tendons connect your muscles to your bones. When a tendon is damaged, it’s usually due to overuse. Other tendon conditions include tendonitis, which occurs when the tendon slowly wears down, and tendon tears, which are often the result of a sudden injury that rips the tissue in two.

Referred pain

Referred pain in your shoulder originates in another part of your body. The source of your pain might be a herniated disc, spinal stenosis, or degenerative disc disease in your cervical (neck) or upper spine.

This type of pain is usually constant — neither increasing nor decreasing with movement — compared to arthritis or tendon injuries, which tend to worsen with motion.

How is shoulder pain treated?

Dr. Roofian offers a wide range of surgical and nonsurgical treatments for shoulder pain. Initial therapies to relieve your pain might include physical therapy to help rebuild the muscles and tendons or steroid injections to help decrease inflammation. Dr. Roofian might also suggest electric stimulation, a therapy clinically proven to manage chronic pain.

For more complicated shoulder injuries, Dr. Roofian might recommend:

  • Joint replacement: replacing a degenerated shoulder joint
  • Manipulation: gently moving your shoulder while it’s under anesthesia
  • Arthroscopic capsular release: a small incision is made to remove scar tissue

With shoulder pain that isn’t responsive to nonsurgical treatments, Dr. Roofian may suggest a surgical option like spinal fusion. While spinal fusion is an effective treatment because it secures vertebrae in place, it can require a lengthy recovery.

If you’re experiencing shoulder pain or reduced range of motion, call Integrated Pain Management or schedule an appointment online today.
