Shoulder pain can occur in many forms: Some patients experience sharp, shooting pains, while others experience a dull, chronic ache.
Shoulder pain may be most evident when the shoulder is in use (e.g., during stretching or lifting) or when the patient is sitting or lying down. This is the case because, as the most mobile joint in the body, the shoulder is prone to various injuries and disorders, including tendinitis, rotator cuff tear, frozen shoulder, arthritis, and impingement.
To regain optimal shoulder joint function without invasive surgery, patients suffering from shoulder pain are often prescribed a blend of physiotherapy, massage, and gentle exercises. These treatments restore normal joint movement while correcting the position and functioning of the shoulder joint to prevent reinjury.
