Shoulder Pain

One of the most common things that people complain worldwide after back pain and neck pain is neck and shoulder pain. Basically, you can say that it is a pain that affects the upper body – pain, and discomfort that radiates through the neck, shoulders, arms and upper back.

As more and more people spend their days inside the office sitting at a desk in front of their computers, the incidence of upper shoulder pain has increased in the last decade. Shoulder pain doctors agree that when you spend these hours in front of your computer, you put pressure and strain on your upper body part.

According to our specialists at Pain Management Brooklyn NYC, the reason for such a shoulder and arm pain is myofascial irritation and joint dysfunction. It is also called shoulder muscle pain. Shoulders hold the large muscles of the scapula which are attached to the rib cage. Our doctors for shoulder pain treatment in Brooklyn suggest that the shoulder arm muscles are prone to overuse due to bad posture and shoulder strain. Sports injuries are very common, tennis, football, basketball and even golf can lead to shoulder injuries, pain between shoulder blades and shoulder arm pain on the upper extremities.
