Your shoulder moves more than any other joint in your body.
It is involved in many of your daily activities. When your tendons, which provide stability and mobility, become inflamed or tear, they cause pain. If pain from a dislocation injury, a torn rotator cuff, or arthritis limits your arm movement and stops you from doing the things you enjoy, it’s time to take action.
See an orthopedic specialist if you have:
- Pain that keeps you awake
- Shoulder stiffness
- Swelling and inflammation in your shoulder
- Severe pain
- Redness or swelling
- Pain that restricts your arm movement
- Difficulty rotating your arm
