Treatment Options

How severe is your shoulder pain?

Most of us try to minimize the amount of pain we feel. We don't like to complain, and it may seem like focusing on the pain makes it worse. But before you can treat your condition, it's important to get an accurate idea of the pain you're experiencing, how it affects your mobility, and the effect it is having on your daily life. To begin, answer the questions below.

Shoulder pain assessment

  • Does your shoulder hurt one or more days a week?
  • Does the pain interfere with your sleep?
  • Are pain medications no longer working?
  • Is it painful to perform everyday tasks and activities?
  • Does the pain interfere with your ability to move your arm?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, it may be time to speak to a physician about treatment options.
