Shoulder Pain can limit even the most simple tasks. Shoulder pain can prevent you from being able to scratch your back, wave to a friend or raise your arm in any upward motion. Ignoring these aches and pains will only lead to prolonged issues or new shoulder injuries within the soft tissue or bone structure. IBJI acknowledges that all pain, even temporary, should not be brushed aside. Your shoulder is needed in just about all performances of the arm and we want to make sure you shoulder maintains full strength, mobility and comfort.
When to Address Your Shoulder Pain with a Doctor
Common shoulder pain usually involves the muscles, ligaments and tendons of the shoulder. Our shoulder specialists at IBJI often see rotator cuff trauma as the main cause of shoulder injuries. Rotator cuff muscles hold the components of the shoulder joint together and pain ensues when these muscles are affected. Our shoulder specialists at IBJI want to treat your shoulder ailments to ensure you maintain a full range of motion. If you’re experiencing any discomfort or abnormalities please find your closest IBJI location and talk to one of our orthopedic shoulder specialists to get treated today.
