Your shoulder pain may have any number of causes, and identifying yours helps your pain management specialist at Metro Denver Pain Management develop your treatment plan.
Fractures and tendon tears can also cause shoulder pain.
Your pain specialist at Metro Denver Pain Management conducts a thorough examination to help identify the cause of your shoulder pain. If needed, diagnostic tests may be ordered, such as X-rays, MRIs, or CT scans, to help determine the cause of your pain.
Treatment for your shoulder pain may depend on the cause. Your pain specialist will develop an individualized treatment plan that provides you with the most relief.
Treatment may include:
Your pain specialist may also refer you to a physical therapist to provide exercises that improve your shoulder’s range of motion, flexibility, and strength.
If your pain specialist can’t relieve your symptoms with conservative treatments, you may be referred to a surgeon who can conduct an arthroscopy, which is a minimally invasive procedure that uses a surgical camera to view your shoulder from the inside, typically providing more information about the cause of your pain.
