Shoulder pain - Dr. Michael Lehmann
Causes of shoulder pain
Shoulder pain can be caused by a wide variety of different things that can affect the entire body, all manner of joint and soft tissue structures throughout the shoulder girdle or even the cervical spine.
Shoulder pain at night is common, and this usually indicates bursitis. However the location of the shoulder pain and triggering it in specific arm or shoulder positions are also key signs to an experienced shoulder specialist.
Why should I see a shoulder specialist?
Because the shoulder joint has the most complex joint structure in the human body, a precise analysis of the presenting shoulder pain places considerable demands on the skill and experience of the investigating doctor.
