Shoulder Pain & Rotator Cuff Tear Q & A

What is shoulder pain?

The shoulder, composed of a ball-and-socket joint, is the most mobile joint in your body. Your rotator cuff plays a significant role in this mobility. The rotator cuff is made up of four tendons connecting your bones to your muscle.

Pain in the shoulder can be due to damaged or diseased bones, joints, ligaments, cartilage, tendons, or bursa. Bursae are the lubricated cushions that reduce friction between soft tissue and bones.

What causes shoulder pain?

Your shoulder's mobility makes it extremely vulnerable to injury and disease. Shoulder injuries can be caused by several factors, including:

  • Repetitive movement
  • Manual labor
  • Playing sports
  • Disease and injury
  • Adhesive Capsulitis (Frozen Shoulder)
  • Osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis
  • Brusitis/ Impingement
  • Tendinopathy (Tendonitis)
  • Strains and sprains
  • Tendon rupture
  • Torn cartilage

Shoulder pain can sometimes be referred pain, or pain resulting from injury to another part of your body that you feel in your shoulder. One such cause of referred pain is a pinched nerve.

How is shoulder pain diagnosed and treated?

At Nassim Medical, you don’t have to wait for insurance authorizations to receive your diagnosis and treatment. The clinic offers on-site diagnostic techniques to successfully diagnose your shoulder pain and advanced nonsurgical medical procedures to treat it.

Using cutting-edge technology like musculoskeletal ultrasound, Dr. Ariel and Dr. Roland Nassim can identify soft tissue damage immediately without the need for an MRI. They also use ultrasounds to guide the injections directly to the source of your pain or injury.

After identifying the cause of your shoulder pain, Dr. Ariel and Dr. Roland Nassim may recommend physical therapy, regenerative medicine techniques that activate your body’s natural healing properties, or cortisol (steroid) injections.
