The very fact that the shoulder is the most movable and flexible joint in the body also means it is one of the most fragile. Shoulder problems and pain can arise from either chronic wear or sudden injury - and these problems can be extremely painful and left untreated, life altering. Many chronic shoulder problems can be traced to over-use motions - typically repeated overhead movements that may be common in certain occupations. Weekend athletes and do-it-yourselfers can also be affected by the routine motions required to golf, play tennis, swim, lift weights or work on common construction projects. The most likely causes of shoulder pain include tendonitis, bursitis, and an inflamed rotator cuff. Collectively, this group of conditions is called shoulder impingement syndrome.
There are a number of shoulder pain treatments that may be effective for shoulder impingement syndrome. Upon evaluation of your individual shoulder condition, your doctor will provide you the best treatment plan.
