Why Does My Shoulder Hurt So Much?

Shoulder pain can be debilitating and interfere with your ability to perform normal, everyday tasks, so it is critical that you identify the source of your pain and seek treatment immediately.

Common Culprits of Shoulder Pain

If you are experiencing shoulder pain, it could be coming from a number of different sources, and it is critical to know the source. Possible causes include:

  • Locked shoulder muscles
  • Rotator cuff damage
  • Inflammation of the shoulder joint (bursitis)
  • Separated shoulder
  • Ruptured or torn tendon
  • Ruptured or torn cartilage
  • Dislocation
  • Broken bone or sprain in the arm or shoulder
  • Arthritis
  • Impending heart attack

In order to definitively determine the cause of shoulder pain, you must first consult with a medical professional and receive a formal evaluation. If it occurs because of an underlying issue, it is unlikely to go away unless that underlying issue is treated directly. “Pushing through the pain,” on the other hand, can significantly worsen the underlying issue and lead to long-term physical harm to your shoulder and the joints, bones, muscles, and tendons in and around it.
