Shoulder amazingly complicated musculoskeletal part.
Chronic pain can derive from joint injury, ligament sprain, chronic tendonitis, muscle spasm, etc. Imaging studies useful; not to be relied on for diagnosis when negative. Best instrument to diagnose is osteopathic doctor who listens, understands shoulder & knows how to touch & examine the different tissues. Medicine is an "art & science".
