Be Evaluated: Its not possible to improve the situation without an accurate diagnosis. Shoulder pain can be caused by problems specific to the shoulder, or the pain can be the result of a problem in another location in the body like the neck. Once an accurate diagnosis is made physical therapy targeting the identified problem and some anti inflammatory medication is first line treatment.

Do not show off: If you are having pain from your lax shoulder joints you will continue to damage them if you do not seek the care of an orthopaedic surgeon. I would go to one who has lots of shoulder experience.

It can be: Tailbone injuries can be extremely painful. Fortunately, they rarely cause any permanent damage and rarely need any kind of intervention. Unfortunately, little can be done to speed up recovery or change its course. Treatment usually involves avoiding pain, using soft cushions or doughnuts, and resting.

Why does my calf hurt when I stand on my toes?

Tight Calf Muscles!: The reason your calf hurts is how tight the entire muscle group is. When you stand on your toes, the calf muscle contracts, and if it is tight, then you may have pain. Performing runners' stretches are very beneficial and should help reduce the pain. If it continues, seek medical treatment with a podiatrist.
