Shoulder Pain

Based on your answers, some of the most likely causes of your shoulder pain are

  • tendonitis

  • bursitis

  • a partial tear of the rotator cuff tendon

  • frozen shoulder, a condition in which motion in the shoulder is severely limited in all directions, may complicate any of these conditions if pain lasts long enough and if you restrict your motion as a response.

Over-the-counter pain medicines, rest and ice may be helpful, but if symptoms persist, it is important that you see a physician to evaluate these symptoms.
