While shoulder pain may be common, it should not be ignored. Often times chronic shoulder pain is significant of a more serious diagnosis. Dr. Mallo notes that “Shoulder pain is a very common part of everyday life. Most people do not seek care assuming they have a “sprain” or “tendinitis” when something much more severe is present.
A delay in a correct, timely diagnosis, such as a retracted rotator cuff tear, can result in irreversible muscle or tendon damage.”
