YOUR SHOULDER FAILING YOU?? Dear NW Indiana Neighbor, There’s not a whole lot worse than an achy irritated shoulder. It can cause an unexpected sharp pain just reaching out a certain way…it can almost drop you to your knees. It can ruin your night…making it impossible to get a good night sleep…and what’s worse, you wake up cranky. It can change the way you put on your shirt…or for the ladies, your bra…because it’s just too painful to do it the way you used to. It can stop you from enjoying daily simple tasks…making you frustrated…forcing you to take more pain pills than you would care to admit. And for golfers out there…it can ruin your game…getting scores you’re too embarrassed to tell…your friends are probably wondering why you even care to play! Top 3 Causes Why Your Shoulders Are Failing You There are 3 most common causes of shoulder pain. Cause #1 is arthritis. The most common form of arthritis in the shoulder is “osteoarthritis”. The joint wears out and may crop up as you age. You start to feel and hear irritating and alarming noises from your shoulder as you try to move your arm. You might respond to arthritis pain by reducing your shoulder movements…but this can backfire and cause tightness or stiffness in the soft tissues of your shoulder joint. This can then lead to significant pain when moving the shoulder…and worst, it can cause your shoulder joint to freeze up. Cause #2 is tendinitis and bursitis. Shoulders are prone to overuse injuries from repetitive tasks, such as overhead lifting. This often shows up in the form of tendinitis, an inflammation of the tendons, and bursitis, inflammation of the bursa. The bursa is a fluid-filled sac between tendons and bones that allows them to glide easily. If the bursa is inflamed, the tendons may scrape against the shoulder bones resulting in weakness or tearing. Sharp thunderbolt-like pain that drops you on your knees can be a telltale sign. Cause #3 is rotator cuff tendon tears. The rotator cuff is a group of four muscles that run from your shoulder blade into the top end of your arm bone. When torn (there are 3 grades of tears), you’ll experience pain and weakness as you try to raise your arm overhead, or when reaching behind the back such as with women trying to strap on their bra.
