One of the most mobile and active joints in the body is shoulder joint. It allows your arm to move sideways, up and down, forward and backward, or in a circular motion. Many of the activities you do daily are due to the range of motion that shoulder joints provide.

This is the reason why shoulder joints are also vulnerable to injury and other issues. For instance, you may injure your shoulder due to strenuous movement, sports or manual labor, or you may feel pain and swelling in the joint area due to diseases. Age also plays a huge factor. As you grow older, your joint degenerates which eventually limit the strength and mobility of your shoulder joints. But, as in other kinds of pain, there are medical interventions that you can count on.

Identifying the cause of the shoulder joint pain plays a vital role in eliminating the same. Some of the most common shoulder pain causes are rotator cuff tendinitis, injury, torn rotator cuff, torn cartilage, arthritis, frozen shoulder and dislocated shoulder. Part of the medical methods in eliminating shoulder joint pain is diagnosis. The doctor will conduct physical examination, medical test or history evaluation in order to properly diagnose the underlying cause of your shoulder pain.

The treatment depends on the severity and cause of the pain. The common medical methods include occupational or physical therapy, medications, wearing an immobilizer, and in certain cases, surgery. If you undergo surgery, make sure that you follow the instructions of your pain specialist for your fast recovery. Some of the medications prescribed by doctors are nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medications (NSAIDs) and anti-inflammatory drugs such as corticosteroids.

If the joint pain is minor and does not last long, the pain specialist may just ask you to rest and treat it at home. Applying cold packs on the shoulder for 15 to 20 minutes per session for three to four times a day helps reduce the pain and the swelling. For any of these treatments to work, it is important that you rest your shoulders for several days. Avoid any activity that might stress out or force your shoulder. In some cases, wearing elastic bandage for compression also helps.

Shoulder pain can be a sign of a heart attack if accompanied by other specific symptoms. If this happens to you, call for an emergency. Also, if the shoulder pain lasts long and keeps on getting worse, especially if it already limits your movement, immediately call or help.

Swimming craul in cold water worsen the pain. The cause is bad posture - bad balance and bad form of strokes. Also side window opened when driving a car is a bad idea.

Here's a video I found of an acupuncture practitioner in the western Indian state of Maharashtra (capital Mumbai). It's in Marati, but you don't need to know the language. He has a few English sub-titles, of his address and acupuncture points.

A friend with frozen shoulder got cured with acupuncture (the practitioner says all acupuncture practioners know about pt St 38 Tiaokou, inserting two needles there stimulating it strongly). My pain goes away with a month's rest but gets aggravated by doing pushups. So, I've given up pushups.

after 1,5 yrs of pain and treatment and rest i went to see accupuncture/physiotherapist! Frozen shoulder was gone in 5 sessions, where only 1 needle was used! Awesome!

Re: Pain radiating from shoulder to bicep to upper forearm — Much improved since following Egoscue method. Anti inflamitorys work for the short term.

Re: Pain while trying to sleep — Have to lie on my back while falling a sleep

Re: Pain when resting arm — deltoid inflammed, resting arm feels better with armrest

Re: Pain when moving neck — I play soccer and if I throw the ball in my right arm can start to aching right away and feel like deed weight.

Re: Pain when moving neck — when I move my neck I have a very tight feeling in my neck and shoulders mostly right side, it can shoot all the way down my right arm at times.

Re: Pain when moving neck — aching pain that goes down my right arm...when I take a advil the aching seems to go away..
