The shoulder is an incredible part of the human body, offering both the greatest range of motion and the least amount of stability.

Symptoms of Shoulder Pain in St. Louis

From swimmer’s shoulder to injuries of the rotator cuff, we treat a number of shoulder-related conditions using innovative, non-surgical pain treatments that help our patients get back to health and focus on a healthy, active lifestyle.

The shoulder joint is a ball-and-socket - made of tendons connected to the arm, collarbone, and shoulder blade. This design lets you swing your arm in a circular motion with a great range of mobility. The dynamic nature of the shoulder makes it especially vulnerable to injury and pain. Damaging any part of the shoulder can result in dull or sharp pain, a loss of motion, muscle spasms, swelling, stiffness, weakness, and even numbness and tingling.

In some cases, if shoulder pain is accompanied by radiating pain in the neck, chest, or jaw, this may be symptoms of reduced flow to the heart.


  • Torn Rotator Cuff: Overusing the muscles and tendons around the joint can cause a tear in the rotator cuff
  • Injury to the Spine: After experiencing an injury to the spinal cord, many patients are left with chronic shoulder pain, especially if they overuse the arm.
  • Pinched Nerves: When we age, vertebrae in our spine can become compressed and the discs between them get thinner. This can cause the bones to pinch and put pressure on the surrounding nerves.
  • Injury From Strain From Overuse: Repetitive motions can cause shoulder pain by connective tissues rubbing against the shoulder blade.
  • Dislocated Shoulder: This is an injury where the upper arm bone comes out of the shoulder blade socket.
