Chronic Shoulder Pain Treatment
Ongoing, or chronic, shoulder pain can impact almost every aspect of your life. It can be difficult to perform daily personal tasks, do your job or even sleep through the night. There are many different conditions that cause chronic shoulder pain. At CLEAR Wellness Group, we offer an accurate diagnosis of the cause of shoulder pain and provide chronic shoulder pain treatment at our medical clinic in Chicago.
Chronic shoulder pain and functional issues impact more than your shoulder joint. The shoulder can reduce movement in the arm, elbow and hand, limiting your upper body mobility. Chronic shoulder pain treatment begins with determining the source of pain and dysfunction. This can include damage to the glenohumeral or AC joints, rotator cuff, pinched nerves and other conditions. Finding the source of chronic pain is the first step in determining the best treatment plan to relieve the pain and improve shoulder function.
Causes of Chronic Shoulder Pain
Acute shoulder pain is common when you strain or sprain tissues in the joint. Chronic shoulder pain is usually due to a permanent injury, degenerative disease or other condition. Some of the common causes of chronic pain in the shoulder include:
- Arthritis – rheumatoid arthritis (RA), osteoarthritis
- Frozen shoulder
- Pinched nerves (neck or shoulder)
- Shoulder impingement
- Torn rotator cuff
- Bone spurs
Finding the cause of chronic shoulder pain is crucial to determine the best treatment plan. Our double board certified physicians at CLEAR Wellness Group can provide an accurate diagnosis of shoulder pain and create a treatment plan that will provide relief.
