Shoulder Pain

What causes shoulder pain?

Shoulder pain can stem from any number of issues, from a problem with the ball-and-socket joint within your shoulder to muscle strain. 

The leading cause of shoulder pain is rotator cuff tendonitis, or swelling and irritation in the four tendons that give your shoulder its range of motion. Other common causes of shoulder pain include:

  • A pinched nerve
  • Torn cartilage
  • An overuse injury
  • Born spurs
  • Arthritis

Raj Pain Clinic and Recovery Centers works with you to identify the root of your specific shoulder pain so they can deliver targeted, effective treatment. 

How is shoulder pain treated? 

Raj Pain Clinic  and Recovery Centers offers a range of safe, innovative, minimally invasive treatments to help you get relief. These include:

Nerve blocks 

Blocking the nerves in your shoulder from sending pain signals to your brain is a direct, effective way to eliminate shoulder pain. 

With targeted injections, your experienced Elite Pain Management and Recovery Centers provider does exactly that. Suprascapular nerve blocks, in particular, are effective for shoulder pain caused by arthritis. 

Steroid injections

When inflammation is the root cause of your shoulder pain, as is the case with rotator cuff tendonitis, treating it is an effective way to get relief. 

With that goal in mind, Raj Pain Clinic and Recovery Centers offers cortisone steroid injections that minimize inflammation in the targeted area. 


Raj Pain Clinic and Recovery Centers offers nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) to moderate inflammation in your body and help your shoulder heal. They also offer muscle relaxants to resolve certain types of shoulder pain. 

Which shoulder pain treatment is right for me?

It depends on what causes your shoulder pain and how your body responds to specific treatments. Your Raj Pain Clinic  and Recovery Centers provider works with you to help you find safe, effective, lasting relief from your shoulder pain, no matter the cause.
