At Advanced Medical Clinics, we understand just how debilitating acute or chronic shoulder pain can be. Your shoulders have a wide and flexible range of motion. However, when an issue arises with your shoulder, it can limit your freedom of motion, lead to noticeable pain & discomfort, and make most activity very uncomfortable (if not painful). Many physicians don't treat shoulder pain other than steroid injections or bursitis injections because shoulder pain is difficult to diagnose and treat.
So if your suffering from a painful or achy shoulder, its easy to think that "it just comes with age" or it's just arthritis or wear and tear" In fact, shoulder pain is one of the top reasons people visit a doctor, chiropractor or physical therapist. Studies have shown that up to 70% of adults will experience shoulder pain at some point in their lives. This type of pain can occur for a variety of reasons, such as injuries, overuse, or conditions like arthritis. It’s important to understand that shoulder pain can happen to anyone, regardless of age or activity level.
When shoulder pain occurs, it can make everyday tasks, like lifting a grocery bag, reaching above your head, sleeping, or even getting dressed painful. This can greatly impact your daily life, making it hard to work, participate in hobbies or sports, or simply live your life pain free. You may have tied stretching, heat, ice or just living with it. Some of you have tried physical therapy, steroid injections or others. but it doesn't seem to get any better or stay better. If you are experiencing acute or chronic shoulder pain, your NOT alone. We hear this every day. In fact, SHOULDER PAIN is one of the most common problems that we treat at Advanced Medical Clinics.

Go to the nearest emergency room or call 911 if you have sudden intense left shoulder pain or if you have sudden pressure or crushing pain in your shoulder, especially if the pain runs from your chest to the left jaw, arm or neck, or occurs with shortness of breath, dizziness, or sweating as this can sometimes be a sign of a heart attack.
Go to the nearest emergency room or call 911 if you’ve experienced a severe trauma like a car accident or significant fall and you can’t move your arm or shoulder or if you think you have a dislocation or fracture, or the shoulder is very painful, swollen, bruised or bleeding.
Come see our non-surgical orthopedist trained medical doctor for a shoulder evaluation and examination if you have any of the following:
Until you can see our doctor, take care of your shoulder pain at home. Wrap the ice in cloth, so it doesn't give you frostbite. Try putting ice on your shoulder for 15 minutes, then leave it off for 15 minutes, then back on for 15 minutes. Do this three or four times a day for 3 days. Consider using over-the-counter rubs and remedies.
Even if you have an appointment with us if your symptoms get worse or you feel you have a fracture go to the emergency room.
Arthritis of the shoulder happens over time so your shoulder will get gradually worse. With arthritis of the shoulder, and the shoulder joint often becomes stiff and may swell, this makes it difficult to move the arm. Pain and swelling may be worse in the morning, or after sitting or resting. Evening pain may be due to overuse. Activity may cause pain to flare up and can also produce inflammation or swelling.
According to the latest from Mount Siani Hospital: The most common cause of shoulder pain occurs when rotator cuff tendons become trapped under the bony area in the shoulder. The tendons become inflamed or damaged. This condition is called rotator cuff tendinitis or bursitis.
Shoulder pain may also be caused by:
Sometimes, shoulder pain may be due to a problem in another area of the body, such as the neck or lungs. This is called referred pain. There is usually pain at rest and no worsening of pain when moving the shoulder.
Feeling pain in your shoulder when you lift your arm over your head may mean you have a have a problem with your rotator cuff. So, what causes rotator cuff problems? The rotator cuff is a group of muscles and tendons that attach to the bones of your shoulder joint. The group allows your shoulder to move and keeps it stable.
Pain in your rotator cuff area usually means you have:
Rotator cuff tendinitis may be due to keeping your arm in the same position for long periods of time, such as doing computer work or hairstyling. Sleeping on the same arm each night can also cause this problem. You can also get tendinitis playing sports that require you to move your arm over your head repeatedly, such as in tennis, baseball especially pitching, swimming, and weight-lifting.
Rotator cuff tears may happen if you fall on your arm while it is stretched out, or after a sudden, jerking motion when trying to lift something heavy. Chronic tears occur slowly over time, particularly in people who have chronic tendinitis. At some point, the tendon wears down and starts to tear. If you have tendinitis, you'll have pain when you lift your arm over your head, such as when you brush your hair and reach for objects on shelves. The pain may be mild at first, but over time you may have pain at rest or at night, especially when you lie on your shoulder. The pain of a sudden rotator cuff tear can be intense. Your shoulder may be weak, and you may hear a snapping sound when you move your shoulder. Chronic symptoms include a gradual worsening of pain, weakness, stiffness or loss of motion. Most people with rotator cuff tears have worse pain at night and when they wake up.
Why put yourself through invasive surgery if it can be avoided. Total shoulder replacement surgery can be very expensive and reports of the total cost of this procedure vary with the hospital, physician and demographic region of the country. Most major insurance companies including Medicare cover shoulder replacements. According to the published statistics, the average cost of a shoulder replacement exceeds $45,000.

The short answer to this question is: YES!
Bursitis is an inflammation of a bursa. It is a condition usually characterized by pain and sometimes by redness and swelling. A bursa is a very thin (i.e., a few cells thick), sac-like structure that is located wherever there might be friction, such as between skin and bones, between tendons and bones or between ligaments and bones. In other words, they serve to decrease the friction that occurs between hard bone and softer tissues.
There are generally three types of bursitis:
1) chronic bursitis,
2) infected bursitis, and
3) traumatic bursitis.
The symptoms of bursitis vary by type and severity, but may include:
Depending on the type of shoulder bursitis, treatment may include:
Surgery is rarely needed to treat bursitis.
