Shoulder pain can occur for many reasons – the most common is injury, like sprains and strains, but medical conditions like arthritis can also cause significant shoulder pain.
In general, if you have no experience of recent injury and the shoulder pain is unexpected, it’s a good idea to consult a doctor. Various medical conditions can cause shoulder pain, which is why it’s important to know as soon as possible whether your situation is serious or not.
Orthopedic physical therapists specialize in using non-surgical approaches to treat conditions of the musculoskeletal system, which include the shoulder as well as other parts of the body involving the bones, muscles, cartilage, tendons, ligaments, joints, and other connective tissue that supports and binds tissues and organs together.
