THE OBVIOUS FOR SHOULDER PAIN IN FOX CHAPEL
Usually the source of shoulder pain is fairly obvious. You will either have pain after performing a specific activity or after a traumatic event. If either of those two things happen or happened to you then it is easy to point to the cause of the pain. There are however, times when it is less obvious.
THE LESS OBVIOUS
The neck is a very common cause of shoulder pain that people often overlook. While anatomically the shoulders and the neck can be separated a lot of the time peoples subjective thoughts on where their neck ends and their shoulders begin vary. As such a lot of shoulder pain is actually neck pain. In addition neck pain can cause radiating or referred pain into he shoulders. This means that pain in the neck may cause a sharp pain that goes from the neck to the shoulders or just cause pain in the shoulders. When the pain either radiates or is referred into the shoulders it is a lot harder to determine what the cause of your pain may be. If you have shoulder pain but you are unsure why, it may very well become from your neck. Try to observe your pain and see if it is associated with your any strenuous or repetitive activities involving the neck. That may help you determine the cause of your shoulder pain.
