Are you suffering from shoulder pain? Let's ease that here at  Zaker Chiropractic Pain & Wellness. Our team of chiropractors has the expertise for proper diagnosis and treatment of shoulder pain, whether you're having mild pain or more severe issues like injury, dislocated shoulder, or frozen shoulder. You'll find long-lasting relief with our personalized shoulder pain treatment plans and our commitment to holistic, patient-centered care.

Common Causes of Shoulder Pain

Whatever causes your pain, be it a shoulder injury, an injury elsewhere in the body, or a chronic condition, we will get to the bottom of your symptoms to personalize an effective treatment plan. If you have sudden or chronic shoulder pain, we will examine your spine, elbow, and wrist in addition to your shoulders to determine where and how your injury affects you. 

Here are some of the most common causes of shoulder pain at our three sports rehab facilities in

Sports Injuries

Many athletes use their shoulders to perform rigorous, repetitive movements that stress the tissue and bones. Over time, this may cause inflammation or deterioration in the shoulders. Throwing, catching, swimming, and hitting are all activities that carry risks of a repetitive motion injury. Also, sudden movements during competition or practice can cause over-rotation, bruises, and tears.


Arthritis is a degenerative condition affecting the cartilage, which protects and lubricates your shoulder joints (and other joints). If your shoulder cartilage is worn down, your shoulder bones may rub together, resulting in swelling, pain, and weakness.

Soft Tissue Injuries

Sports injuries aren't the only cause of damage to the soft tissue in the shoulder. The ligaments and tendons in your shoulder are easy to sprain or strain, and poor posture or lack of support will cause gradual injuries as painful as sudden injuries. Poor sleeping positions, constant smartphone use, and poor posture or ergonomics at work can all cause injury to the shoulder tissue.

Rotator Cuff Injury

A rotator cuff tear is a common but painful injury that may weaken your upper arms and shoulders, leading to serious mobility loss and shoulder pain. Torn rotator cuffs are common in many sports and workplaces. The tendons in your shoulders require proper stabilization and can only sustain so much force before tearing.
