Re: burning sensation on shoulder blade

Typically burning pain is associated with muscle. Muscle becomes tight and releases lactic acid and causes burning. Muscle spasm or hypertonicity can be caused by nerve irritation. The nerve is irritated and causes the muscle to tighten up. A common finding is vertebral misalignment causing the nerve to become pinched, which leads to muscle spasm or tightness. There are other organic conditions that can refer pain under the shoulder blade. This is something a chiropractor will consider during his/her examination and will rule out. Chiropractic care is a good idea as it addresses the cause of the problem and doesn't rely on medications to treat the symptoms. If the doctor finds that it is organic in nature he/she will refer you to the appropriate spesensoredt. My guess is it is a mechanical/postural problem.
