Is Your Shoulder Pain Causing You Headache?

There’s nothing worse than waking up to shoulder pain and headache in the middle of the night. Shoulder problems can cause headaches and neck pains. Our shoulders engage in a wide variety of movements daily. So, if something goes wrong inside the shoulder area, then our body becomes more prone to pain.


Link Between Shoulder Pain and Headache

Unknown to many, our shoulders and necks share the same muscles. Thus, headaches can stem from shoulder pain. The joints in our shoulders and necks can sometimes strain. The spasm and irritation that it causes are what triggers the headache. 


What Causes Pain to Your Shoulders?

Several contributing factors lead to the development of shoulder pain. One of the most common reasons for shoulder pain is a swollen tendon. However, shoulder pain could also be a result of injury in the biceps or neck. Here are other causes of shoulder pain:

  • Frozen shoulder
  • Heart attack 
  • A broken bone in the arm
  • Pinched nerves
  • Shoulder dislocation
  • Injury due to repetitive routine or motion
  • Damage in the spinal cord

If you think that your shoulder pain is due to a spinal cord injury, you should contact a Redwood City upper cervical chiropractor. 


When to Know If Your Shoulder Pain is Serious

Seek a doctor if your shoulder pain gets more serious. Here are severe signs to look out for:

  • Fever
  • Bruising that lasts for a while
  • Tenderness around the joint
  • Pain that persists for a long while
  • Pain in both the neck and jaw
  • Dizziness
  • Excessive sweating
