Shoulder Pain Treatments

Shoulder pain can become so intense because the joint is quite complex and a part of many movements and activities that happen daily, making it difficult to simply ignore. Do you work or live in the general Plainfield, IN, area and have shoulder pain that disrupts your daily life? Dr. Jonathon Bright of Bright Chiropractic can help relieve the discomfort and pain a shoulder injury or issue can cause.

Common Causes of Shoulder Pain

The shoulder joint consists of various bones, muscles, ligaments, and  tendons that work in unison to offer tremendous mobility and stability to both your shoulder and arm. The following are the most common ways shoulder pain occurs – which can range from mild to quite intense and severe.

Rotator Cuff Injuries

The group of muscles and tendons that attach the upper portion of your arm bone to your shoulder blade is known as the rotator cuff. These injuries can happen for various reasons and can be extremely painful.

Frozen Shoulder

A frozen shoulder refers to a condition where your shoulder’s joint becomes stiff, which then causes pain, tenderness, reduced mobility, and a limited range of motion.


Bursae are the fluid-filled sacs within a joint that cushions and protects it from friction. If the bursae become inflamed, the result is bursitis, a painful condition that can benefit from chiropractic treatment.


Arthritis afflicts the joints and has the potential to both inflame and damage them. It can affect any joint – including the shoulder, and cause stiffness, pain, and reduced motion.


This refers to a condition when your tendons – the tissues which connect bones to muscles, become inflamed and painful.  

A Pinched Nerve

A nerve in the shoulder or neck can radiate pain through the shoulder.
