Shoulder Pain Is A Common Complaint
Encompassing four joints and a host of supportive muscles, tissues, and ligaments, the shoulder joint is among the most complex in the human body. Arguably the most used joint in the human body, 1 in 2 people will experience pain in the shoulder at some point in their life, and most shoulder pain will resolve itself within a matter of days. If not, it could be time to seek treatment.
When should you seek treatment for shoulder pain?
- If the shoulder pain does not resolve itself in less than a week.
- If the same pain recurs in the same location
- Loss of range of motion
- Loss of strength
- Swelling or bruising around the joint
As is the case with any condition involving the human body, the sooner you get a proper diagnosis, the sooner you can get appropriate treatment, and the sooner the issue will resolve itself.
