When Should You See a Shoulder Doctor?

The shoulder is a complex structure made of three separate joints. They work together to give the shoulder a tremendous range of motion, but these joints are also susceptible to overuse injuries. Some of the most common shoulder injuries are caused by excessive, repetitive, overhead motion, such as swimming, tennis, pitching, and weightlifting. Injuries can also occur during everyday activities such as gardening, hanging pictures and house cleaning.

Understanding the anatomy of the shoulder is the first step in helping you identify your specific injury or condition faster. If you're experiencing shoulder pain and have any of the following symptoms or issues, then you should consider a consultation with a Resurgens shoulder expert:

  • Bone-against-bone sensation when moving your shoulder
  • Decreased range of motion
  • Intense shoulder pain that appears unexpectedly
  • Pain radiating down to the elbow
  • Pain when shrugging your shoulders
  • Shoulder aches or is tender
  • Shoulder joint inflammation or stiffness never completely subsides
  • Weakness when trying to use your arm
