Understanding the Common Causes of Shoulder Pain

Shoulder pain can stem from various factors, with rotator cuff injuries being the most prevalent, affecting approximately 2 million people in Canada each year. However, conditions such as bursitis, tendinopathy, and arthritis also contribute to shoulder pain.

Identifying the root cause of your shoulder pain is crucial for effective treatment. Our team of experts at our chiropractic practice will determine and comprehend the source of your pain, allowing you to experience the desired results more easily.

Here’s an overview of the common conditions that often lead to shoulder pain:

Rotator cuff injuries

The rotator cuff comprises a group of muscles and tendons surrounding the shoulder joint. Injuries to the rotator cuff can result from overuse, repetitive movements, or trauma, leading to pain, weakness, and limited range of motion.


This term encompasses conditions that affect the tendons, which are thick tissues connecting muscles to bones. Tendonitis and tendinosis are the most common types. Both cause pain and may restrict mobility. Tendonitis involves tendon inflammation due to overuse or injury. Tendinosis occurs when the tissue degenerates gradually, breaking down or tearing over time.


Bursitis refers to inflammation of the bursa, a small fluid-filled sac that cushions the shoulder joint. It can cause pain, swelling, and difficulty with overhead movements and activities, such as lying on the affected shoulder.


This painful condition involves the deterioration of cartilage in the shoulder joint. While the exact cause is often unknown, some develop it after an injury, while others may have genetic predispositions. Osteoarthritis leads to pain, inflammation, and cartilage loss.

Rheumatoid arthritis

This form of arthritis is an autoimmune disease that targets the membranes surrounding the shoulder joint. It results in discomfort, inflammation, and difficulties in performing daily activities.

No matter the cause of your shoulder pain, our chiropractic practice is here to provide scientifically-backed treatment solutions tailoredto your specific needs.

Relieving Your Shoulder Pain with Expert Care

During your initial appointment, our chiropractors will conduct a comprehensive physical examination, carefully review your medical history, and discuss your symptoms and limitations. Through this detailed assessment, we aim to pinpoint the exact source of your pain and create a customized treatment plan that addresses your unique requirements. Our treatment plans may vary depending on the underlying condition or injury causing your pain, and they often incorporate one or more evidence-based techniques, including:

  • Exercise: Therapeutic exercises play a crucial role in managing and alleviating shoulder pain. We will design a personalized exercise program with targeted movements to improve your shoulder’s range of motion, strength, and overall function. We’ll also track your progress over time and gradually increase the intensity to ensure ongoing improvements.
  • Manual therapyOur chiropractors utilize various hands-on treatments, known as manual therapy, to restore joint and soft tissue mobility. Techniques such as joint mobilization, soft tissue manipulation, and myofascial release are employed to reduce pain and enhance mobility. Manual therapy is particularly beneficial for individuals who may not tolerate active exercise yet.
  • Modalities: We offer a range of drug-free pain relief modalities, including hot and cold therapy, electrical stimulation, and more. These modalities can effectively reduce pain and inflammation, preparing your body for other treatments and promoting the healing process.
