How do I know if my shoulder pain is considered serious?
Shoulder pain is usually considered severe if it is chronic or acutely painful. Rather than figuring out your pain on an ambiguous and arbitrary scale of 1-10, there are other signs to look for that are more indicative of a severe condition or injury. The line in the sand to determine if your pain is chronic or not is if you have been experiencing shoulder pain for at least three months. Signs of a severe injury with regard to shoulder pain could include a deformed-looking shoulder joint, an inability to move your shoulder, severe pain, sudden swelling, and a weak or numb arm or hand. Such symptoms could indicate dislocation, separation, fracture, cartilage tear, rotator cuff tear, bursitis, frozen shoulder, impingement of the rotator cuff tendons, osteoarthritis, or rheumatoid arthritis. If you experience any of the above symptoms with regard to shoulder pain or have experienced shoulder pain consistently for three months, call your doctor or make an appointment with us at Hoboken Integrated Healthcare. It is crucial to be proactive with treatment so that your condition or injury does not worsen.
What can cause shoulder pain without injury?
It can be very confusing to experience intense shoulder pain without any known injury to cause it! However, there are plenty of reasons why you might experience shoulder pain without experiencing a prior injury. Your shoulder pain could be the result of overuse or repetitive strain, aging-related conditions, spinal issues, calcium buildup, or frozen shoulder. Conditions such as arthritis, bursitis, calcific tendonitis, frozen shoulder, or spinal cord problems often cause shoulder pain without any single event to cause the pain.
