Symptoms of Shoulder Pain

At Physicians Plus, we’ve treated countless patients suffering from shoulder pain, a condition that can significantly hamper your quality of life. It’s important to recognize the symptoms early and seek professional help to prevent the condition from worsening.

When experiencing shoulder pain, you may notice a persistent ache or discomfort in your shoulder area. This pain can intensify when you attempt to use your shoulder, particularly during lifting or reaching movements.

Stiffness is another common symptom, often making it difficult to move the shoulder as freely as you once could. In more severe cases, you might even experience a loss of strength and range of motion in the affected shoulder. Left untreated, these symptoms can escalate, leading to chronic pain, inflammation, and even permanent disability.
Therefore, it’s crucial to seek professional help at the first sign of shoulder pain. Our team of experienced Chicago sports chiropractors at Physicians Plus is here to assist you every step of the way.

Common Causes of Shoulder Pain

Shoulder pain can stem from various causes, each with its own unique set of challenges. Here are some of the most common:

  • Overuse: Repetitive motions, common in sports or certain professions, can strain the shoulder muscles and tendons over time. Think of a tennis player who repeatedly serves the ball, or a painter who consistently reaches overhead. These repetitive movements can lead to overuse injuries, causing pain and inflammation.
  • Sports Injuries: Athletes are particularly prone to shoulder injuries due to the physical demands of their sports. For instance, a baseball player may suffer a rotator cuff tear from the forceful throwing motion, while a weightlifter might develop shoulder impingement syndrome from improper lifting techniques.
  • Past Fractures: If you’ve had a previous shoulder fracture, it could potentially lead to chronic shoulder pain. This is often due to the formation of scar tissue or changes in shoulder mechanics following the injury.

How Physicians Plus
Can Help


Can Chiropractic Help Me Manage My Headaches?
What Types of Treatments Do You Offer?

Physicians Plus is committed to treating patients using methods that consider your individual physical health. Every person has unique movement patterns that they may not even be aware of, along with their own personal health history. Using this information, our physicians can treat muscle pain, back pain, migraines, sports injuries and more at their root cause. We use various chiropractic techniques to relieve your symptoms, including the Graston Technique®, McKenzie Method® and Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization®, to name a few.

What Causes Soft Tissue Injuries, and How Are They Treated?

Soft tissue injuries happen when the muscles, tendons or ligaments experience a trauma. Something as simple as a sprain or overusing a certain muscle group can lead to pronounced pain and other symptoms. Whether your pain occurs suddenly or gradually over time, our team can help. At Physicians Plus, we use the Fascial Distortion Model™ to treat soft tissue injuries and accelerate healing. This approach utilizes a full-body strategy to improve your pain while encouraging tissue repair.
