Shoulder Injuries

Your shoulder contains several joints, tendons and muscles that allow your arm to perform a wide range of motions. This mobility is often taken for granted, and shoulder pain can cause frustration. Our caring Frisco chiropractors and massage therapists are here to help heal your pain and teach you how to live with issues such as arthritis.


Tendinitis and tears of the tendon are common ailments and generally occur due to wear and tear or overuse. Tendinitis is when the tendon simply wears down, while a tendon tear can be a total split of the tendon. Most commonly, the rotator cuff tendons are affected by degenerative diseases and injury the most.


Instability is partial or complete dislocation of the ball of the upper arm from the socket. This can be caused by sudden injury or overuse, especially when playing sports like baseball. It isn’t uncommon for this to happen frequently and cause arthritis.


Osteoarthritis is the most common type found in the shoulder. This type forms over many years of wear and tear. Symptoms include swelling, pain and stiffness. This is also a common ailment in those that have had frequent sports injuries in the shoulder. Many people feel the need to limit the movement of their shoulder because of the pain. However, this can lead to worse pain.


Fractures, or broken bones, often occur in the collarbone, upper arm bone and shoulder blade. Many older patients experience this after a fall, while younger patients get shoulder injuries from sports activities or auto accidents. Fractures can cause severe swelling and pain.
