Shoulder glenohumeral (GH) joint pain is characterized by discomfort located in the shoulder region, specifically within the ball-and-socket joint formed by the humerus and the glenoid socket of the scapula. Individuals with shoulder joint pain may experience aching, soreness, or a dull discomfort, often exacerbated by arm movements or specific shoulder positions. This pain may be localized to the joint itself or radiate into the upper arm or surrounding muscles. Shoulder joint pain can be influenced by various factors, including rotator cuff injuries, tendinitis, bursitis, arthritis, or instability issues within the joint. It is crucial to assess the specific nature and triggers of the pain to determine an accurate diagnosis and tailor appropriate interventions, such as physical therapy, medications, or in some cases, surgical intervention.

A few notable shoulder conditions:

Rotator Cuff Tears

Injuries to the tendons of the rotator cuff muscles, which can result from overuse, aging, or traumatic events, leading to pain and reduced shoulder function.

Shoulder Impingement Syndrome

Compression of the tendons and bursa in the shoulder, often occurring when the arm is lifted, causing pain and inflammation.

Frozen Shoulder (Adhesive Capsulitis)

Inflammation and tightening of the joint capsule, leading to stiffness, pain, and reduced range of motion.

Labral Tears

Damage to the fibrous cartilage (labrum) surrounding the shoulder socket, often caused by trauma or repetitive stress.

Shoulder Dislocation

Displacement of the humeral head from the shoulder socket, commonly resulting from trauma and causing acute pain.

Bicipital Tendinitis

Inflammation of the long head of the biceps tendon, leading to pain in the front of the shoulder.

Acromioclavicular (AC) Joint Arthritis

Degeneration of the AC joint, located at the top of the shoulder, causing pain, swelling, and limited range of motion.

Shoulder Bursitis

Inflammation of the bursa sacs in the shoulder, resulting in pain and swelling.

Glenohumeral Osteoarthritis

Degenerative changes in the shoulder joint, leading to pain, stiffness, and decreased mobility.

Thoracic Outlet Syndrome

Compression of nerves and blood vessels between the neck and shoulder, causing pain, numbness, and tingling in the shoulder and arm.


I came to visit Sin Osteopathic a week ago due to a heavily sprained ankle. I took a wrong step down the stairs while distracting by my phone. The physician checked my ankle carefully and arranged for a x-ray at Columbia Hospital. Luckily, I had no fracture. They did acupuncture, adjustment and applied Chinese herbs to my ankle on the following visit. Today, my ankle got less swollen and I can start to walk with both feet, feeling more balance right now.
