Shoulder Pain

The shoulder is the most mobile joint in the body. As such, it can be injured through work, everyday activity, overuse or specific conditions.

Individuals should go to the emergency room if the shoulder is bleeding, swollen, they can see exposed tissue, the joint is visible deformed, and/or they cannot move the joint. If an individual experience shoulder pain along with trouble breathing, chest pain or tightness, dizziness, sweating, and/or pain in the jaw or neck - call 911 as these are a sign of a possible heart attack.
