Shoulder pain can result from injury, disease, or degeneration and may affect the shoulder joint or its surrounding muscles, tendons, and ligaments.
The shoulder joint is the most mobile joint in the body, but this high mobility level may come at a cost. The rotator cuff, which controls your ROM in the shoulder, can easily be injured, thus hampering your ability to lift your arm and carry things. Activities associated with overuse such as sports, work, or repetitive movements can trigger shoulder pain, becoming severe enough to see a shoulder pain specialist. If you are living with shoulder pain, contact our team to make an appointment today.
Your doctor will inquire about your medical history and your history of symptoms. They’ll conduct a physical examination to look for abnormalities such as deformities, swelling, or weakness and examine your range of motion. Your doctor may order some imaging tests to determine the source of your pain:
Shoulder injuries are the third most common musculoskeletal complaint physiotherapists hear, and it is more common in women than men.
About half of all new shoulder pain episodes resolve themselves in about twelve weeks with adequate rest. Torn rotator cuffs are the most common reasons people visit a shoulder pain specialist.
