What is Shoulder, Arm and Hand Pain?

Shoulder, arm and hand pain can be a problem for many patients which general stems from a multitude of conditions, pain in the shoulders can be due to many dysfunctions including rotator cuff abnormalities and inflammatory pain. Arm and hand pain might be due to muscle spasm and joint arthritis. Our pain experts understand your painful condition at Weston Medical Health Center we provide diagnostic testing to properly assets what the cause of the pain is and then provide proper treatment options for the patient.



Causes of Shoulder, Arm and Hand Pain:

  • Rotator Cuff Dysfunction – The rotator cuff is a very delicate and injury prone area, muscles and tendons in the rotator cuff are generally very fragile. The the smallest movements such as reaching behind your seat in a car or lifting up a weighted object the wrong way can trigger tears and stress in the area causes the patient debilitating shoulder pain.
  • Brachial Plexopathy – This syndrome describes pain and weakness associated with compression of the brachial plexus, which is a large grouping of nerves extending from the neck into the arms. The brachial plexus can become injured by compression of muscles, bone, trauma, tumor, or inflammation and movement of the neck and shoulder can worsen the pain symptoms.
  • Tennis Elbow – Is a painful condition that occurs when tendons in your elbow are overworked, usually by repetitive motions of the wrist and arm.
