The shoulder joint is a common area for pain in adults as it is one of the more mobile joints in the body. Shoulder pain can include irritation or damage to cartilage, ligaments, muscles, nerves or tendons. It is important to seek treatment at the early stages of shoulder pain to limit long-term damage. Here are a few of the most common types of shoulder pain treated by the Comprehensive Pain Institute:
- Rotator cuff issues
- Bone spurs
- Joint dislocation
- Pinched nerves
- Torn cartilage
How is shoulder pain diagnosed?
To identify the underlying cause of your shoulder pain, your specialist at CPI conducts a comprehensive examination. In addition to reviewing your symptoms and evaluating your shoulder, your specialist may also recommend diagnostic imaging, such as an x-ray or MRI, to rule out or confirm the underlying cause of your shoulder pain.
