Shoulder Pain

Why do I get shoulder pain?


Injury to a ligament or muscle (sprains and strains), inflammation of a tendon (tendinitis), inflammation of the fluid-filled sacs near the joint (bursitis), irritation of soft tissues by the bones of the shoulder from repetitive overhead motions.

Will my pain go away?


Shoulder pain will typically resolve on its own within a few weeks or months. Treatment can speed up recovery while reducing pain and improving function.

What can I do?


To help speed up recovery, it is important for you to participate in your care with your healthcare provider. In addition, continue day-to-day activities even if you experience some pain (within reason).
