Shoulder blade pain
Pain on or around the scapula or shoulder blade. The scapula may protrude in the case of a winged scapula and can be due to tightness, weakness or issues with other structures. In some cases the shoulder blade or scapula can be fractured and an aching or sharp pain can be present. Shoulder blade pain can also be burning or radiating from the neck where the nervous system may have been affected. In levator scapulae issues trigger points or stiffness can also cause neck pain with shoulder blade pain. Also due to the location of the rotator cuff muscles to the shoulder blade and attachment any injuries to these or related injuries, which affect these muscles, can elicit scapula pain.
