What shoulder pain feels like depends on its cause, but you can feel an aching, throbbing, weakness, stiffness, or popping when at rest or in motion.

Intense shoulder pain that results in an injury might cause:

  • Swelling
  • Sudden pain
  • A sharp and stabbing pain
  • Limited mobility in arm movement
  • Bruising
  • Discomfort that wakes you from sleep
  • Relentless pain that may get worse

If you experience severe shoulder pain, consult your healthcare provider or rush to the emergency room.

A common source of shoulder discomfort is inflammation of the rotator cuff tendons, known as tendinitis. This occurs when the tendons of the rotator cuff get compressed beneath the shoulder’s upper arm bone, leading to inflammation and the rotator cuff tears.

Other conditions that might be the cause of your shoulder pain include:

  • Arthritis: Arthritis in your shoulder is when cartilage wears thin and exposes the joint bones joint. Without lubrication from the cartilage, the shoulder joints rub together causing arthritis pain.
  • Heart attack: When you experience sudden pain in the left shoulder, it might be a sign of a heart attack. If you experience a sudden crushing pain or pressure in the left shoulder, call 911. It’s more serious if the pain extends to the left arm, chest, or jaw.
  • Frozen shoulder: If your shoulder is immobile, you might have a frozen shoulder. This condition is common in individuals with Parkinson’s disease or diabetes and can last for several months. It happens when connective tissue in the shoulder joint gets thick and stiff.
  • Shoulder instability: Individuals who dislocate their shoulders experience shoulder instability. This means the top arm bone easily pops out of its socket.
  • Shoulder fracture: When you break a shoulder bone, you’ll need surgery to repair it. In the case of a severe fracture, you’ll need shoulder replacement surgery.
  • Shoulder separation: Ligaments between the shoulder blade and collar bone can tear from a car accident, sports injury, or a fall. Surgery is often not necessary, and the tear will heal naturally in 2-12 weeks.

Shoulder pain treatment options may include:

  • Physical therapy
  • NSAIDs (Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs)
  • A steroid injection
  • Shoulder surgery when no other treatment works

Treating your shoulder pain with natural, non-invasive, and non-surgical treatments will help get to the root cause of your pain and boost your body’s unique healing ability. As your tissues and cells are repaired and rejuvenated, your mobility will return, your pain will diminish, and you’ll no longer be limited in what you can do.

As you age, your cells no longer have the same healing powers they once did. Regenerative cellular treatments use potent young healing cells ethically obtained from umbilical cords during scheduled births. There is no harm to either mother or baby. The tissue collection is consented to and carefully screened for communicable diseases.

While at home, you should do the following:

  • Place a cold pack on your shoulder for 15 minutes, then remove it and rest for 15 minutes. Repeat this process three times a day for three days.
  • Let your shoulder rest for a couple of days
  • Ease your way back to your normal routine.

Regenerative medicine is a reliable way to stop shoulder pain so you can comfortably return to normal activities. Relying on drugs and surgery to fix your sore shoulder will not achieve the desired results. When you use medication to treat shoulder joint pain, it dulls your brain’s pain receptors, so you no longer feel discomfort.

You might be able to carry on and resume your activities, but as soon as the medication wears off, you’ll have to take it again. Not to mention, using your shoulder while you are injured or have a degenerative condition may cause even more damage.

Regenerative medicine treats the underlying cause of your sore shoulder, so the cycle doesn’t even need to begin. Once the issue causing the pain is dealt with, the pain will disappear.

Shoulder pain, while common, shouldn’t be a constant companion in one’s life. Understanding its symptoms, causes, and treatments is the first step toward reclaiming a pain-free existence. With the right care and guidance, it’s possible to move past this discomfort and enjoy a full range of motion once again.
