If someone comes to me because of shoulder pain, for example, or a limited range of motion on the shoulder, I can’t directly assume that the shoulder is the problem. It could be something else that seems unrelated. This is why we all need to work correctly in movement throughout the body and also to reconcile ourselves with what works best for us. I like to call it personal optimization. But let’s talk about the shoulder especially because most of us suffer from shoulder failure. The shoulder is the simplest organ in the entire human body. It is formed by the union of the humerus, scapula or shoulder blade, and the clavicle or collarbone.
People often refer to pain in the shoulder or shoulder, when what they mean is “shoulder pain in the back”. And while it is impossible to experience real shoulder pain during breathing, it is very common to experience lower back and shoulder pain especially by taking lower breaths than usual. Shoulder pain associated with breathing and coughing can come from the spinal cord and cortex in different parts of the neck and thorax. If the pain is on the back-to-back and back of the shoulder there is a high probability of coming from a sharp and burning part in the neck and muscles to protect it. These problems are severe and difficult to deal with.
The more I work with the human body, the more I am fascinated by its complexity and its ability to heal. It is anything but a line and everything affects everything. That means that no part of our being is immune to what is happening inside and out. The weather, our emotions, the interactions we have with others, the food, sleep, genetics, respiratory systems, and movements all affect how we browse our days and our lives. Lifted shoulders may not be visible to you until you find yourself in the mirror and deliberately leave them. You will be amazed at how far the shoulders drop when you want to relax.
Do you get pain under right shoulder blade when breathing?
The most common injury we see in our clinics is middle back pain or thoracic back pain and reflexes around the ribs. This type of injury usually occurs during twisting activities and unexpected movements during lifting or even misalignment during sneezing. Many patients complain of severe pain between the shoulder blades, which are associated with muscle spasm and pain appeal. Pain is often exacerbated by deep breathing or distortion of motion. The main cause of this problem is injury to small joints on either side of the spine.
Risk factors for the development of this problem include:
- Poor posture to stay or use to stay longer.
- Low chest extension due to slouching posture.
- Reduce the central rotation, again because of the prolonged stay and insufficient movement of these joints.
- Muscle balance between chest muscles and back muscles.
Physical therapy for this wound includes stimulation of strong and injured joints, massage, dry needles and stretching to help soothe the affected area. A rehabilitation program is designed to treat risk factors and causes of injury.

Causes of pain under right shoulder blade when breathing
Pain under right shoulder blade when breathing is an uncomfortable feeling that patients with back pain may experience, but while it is also associated with shortness of breath, many other ailments are involved as described. The following methods may be possible causes of this condition.
Aortic Dissection; Aortic dissection is a malignant disease in which the inner layer of the aorta, which is the largest blood vessel in the heart, is ruptured. Blood is expelled through a tear, which causes the inner layer and the middle layers of the aorta to separate. If a blood-filled canal ruptures and passes through the outer wall of the aorta, aortic dissection is usually fatal.
Heart attack; The most common clinical presentation of acute respiratory syndromes is retrosternal (part of the chest above the diaphragm) a radiating pressure on the left side, neck or jaw that may be intermittent (usually lasting for several minutes) or continuous. This type of disease is accompanied by other symptoms such as diaphoresis, nausea, abdominal pain, dyspnea and syncope.
Pulmonary embolism; PE is the third leading cause of cardiovascular death, after heart disease and brain accidents (known as strokes). It is not a disease that can be diagnosed or ruled out without the help of expensive photography studies, which requires the inclusion of low-cost coping strategies.
Lung Problems; If the lungs are affected by several infections, it can cause blade pain. Lung issues are common among smokers and are therefore at risk for this type of problem. People suffering from pneumonia experience this pain during deep breathing. Common respiratory issues that include common cold and seasonal flu and other health conditions such as pulmonary embolism and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.
Improper posture; Poor sleep can put a lot of strain on the shoulder muscles and cause pain that increases during respiration. Improper sleeping posture such as lying down on the side can hurt the shoulder and taking a deep breath can exacerbate the pain. Not surprisingly, shoulder pain when lying on the side is worse during breathing exercises. Poor posture can cause blade pain that hurts when you breathe.
Pinched Nerve; Shoulder blade pain is often associated with deterioration of the cervical spine. The cervical spine, which comes from the base of the skull, is made up of 7 bones, and has 8 cervical arteries that protrude from the spinal cord. If there is damage to any of the arteries, also known as the ‘compressed nerve’, it can cause blade pain during breathing. Any injury that removes the intervertebral discs from its normal position puts undue pressure on the cervical arteries.
Prevention of pain under right shoulder blade when breathing
To help prevent this from happening to you try these simple exercises.
- Lie on a floor-wrapped towel lined up on your back. Stretch your arms over your head and feel a gentle stretch as you encourage your chest to expand. Hold each position for 30 seconds and try to do 3 levels of your spine.
- If you have a task that requires you to sit for more than 20 minutes at full time 10 cycles on each side held for five seconds going to your difficulty loosening these mid-limbs in your back
- Lie on your back on Swiss Ball, then rest your hands sideways 90 degrees and keep it there for 30 seconds, rest for 30 seconds and repeat three times.
- Sit or stand, join hands behind head, tip elbow up, elbow down. Do not allow the body to lean.

Treatment of pain under right shoulder blade when breathing
Treatment will depend on the underlying cause. Simple as adopting the correct posture during sleep or sitting can work to end this painful pain. Taking painkillers can help reduce discomfort. Nervous interference can also be treated with exercises that can help reduce pressure on the affected nerve. Therapeutic therapy is also found to be useful in treating constricted nerves. In that case, conventional therapies do not work, and the patient will have to undergo a blood test, CT, or MRI scan to determine the underlying cause of the diagnosis and treatment.
Try these simple tips for breathing well;
Lie on the floor with your knees bent, feet on the floor with your hands aside. Relax and breathe normally. Watch what moves when you inhale and exhale. Can you feel your stomach rising and falling? Can you feel your ribs on the floor moving completely? Does your chest lift up towards your ears on inhalation? Tension builds up in your upper shoulders near your neck or does breathing relax you? There is no wrong answer. Just look.
Now take a very deep breath through your nose, hold for a few seconds, and inhale slowly. Again, just look at what is moving and what is not moving at this time. By taking a deep breath, you have increased the load. In other words, more information goes to your brain with a larger breath to help you better understand what is happening in your body. There is no wrong answer. The goal is simply to get to know you and how you breathe.
Finally, after you have become more familiar with your systems and identified areas of greater mobility or barrier, bring your focus to one of the areas that are used for inhalation. In other words, if the cage of your rib cage does not expand by inhaling too much, place your hands on the side of the cage cage and gently press down slightly. This will help give you feedback on the area and then you can figure out how to move it more or less based on your goal and your feedback.
