Shoulder Pain: Most common causes of shoulder pain are inflammation, SLAPS tears, Rotator Cuff tears, and shoulder dislocations. If you are having pain make an appointment to see an Orthopaedic shoulder surgeon for an examination and treatment options. Many times tjerapy, NSAIDS, pain medications, or a steroid injection can give you great relief. Hope this helps. Take care, Joe Wilson.

Ice.: If you've tried icing the shoulder and taking anti-inflammatory medications, and you're not getting better, then you should see an orthopedic shoulder specialist for evaluation and treatment.
