Shoulder Pain

Helping You Diagnose and Minimize Your Shoulder Pain

Understanding Shoulder Pain

Shoulder pain is a common complaint among the general public. One of the reasons why so many people experience shoulder pain is because people are continually using their shoulders to perform regular movements in everyday tasks. A majority of individuals experience pain in their shoulders at some point. However, if shoulder pain is frequent or debilitating, it may be something more severe than a strain or sprain.

If you are experiencing moderate to severe shoulder pain, you should not hesitate to have it evaluated, as you could be at risk of causing severe or permanent injury. If you are having trouble lifting your arm over your head, you need to be seen as soon as you can, as this is an indication of inflammation that could limit the range of motion or cause the affected joint to become immobile.
