The shoulder consists of several joints that combine with tendons and muscles to allow a wide range of motion in your arm. But, over time, mobility can begin to decrease. It can lead to problems with instability or impingement of the soft tissue or bony structures in the shoulder, resulting in pain. This could be temporary pain, but it could also be a continuous pain that eventually will need a medical diagnosis or treatment.*
Shoulder pain can be caused by a number of different factors, but normally it can be the result of an injury, arthritis or overuse. The sooner you see an orthopedic surgeon, the quicker you can be evaluated for the cause of your shoulder pain, and the better outcome you can experience.*
Normally, your consultation with include a physical exam to find the source of the pain, and potentially an imaging test to further diagnose. Some of the tests can include an X-ray, MRI, ultrasound, CT scan or arthroscopy.*
After examining your shoulder, you could be diagnosed with one of these common types of shoulder pain:*
In many situations, treatment for a shoulder pain can begin with conservative measures, where you will need rest, medication, injections or physical therapy.*
