Shoulder Pain Newtown, PA
The shoulder is a very complex body part. Because of this, there are not many physicians that are true experts on the complete workup and treatment of shoulder pain WITHOUT SURGERY. Shoulder pain can make your arm feel “heavy” or make it hard to reach for or lift things over your head. The pain might come with neck pain or headache. You might go to the doctor and get “a shot” or get weeks to months of physical therapy. Maybe an MRI is taken and chances are if there is a “rotator cuff tear” a surgeon might suggest an operation.
