As Physicians we owe our patients more than “partial temporary relief.” Dr. Trevor Robertson
Shoulder Pain 101
Shoulder Pain is simply the result of injury or damage to one or more of the supporting structures of the shoulder. These include the muscles, ligaments and bones. The shoulder is a complex structure that is not a true joint and in most cases injury is due to muscular imbalance. Injury usually involves a combination of several of the supporting structures with each presenting with different degrees of pain and limitation. This can lead to a complicated overlay of signs and symptoms which are often misdiagnosed resulting in ineffective treatment. The key to a successful outcome depends on a thorough understanding, an accurate diagnosis and appropriate timely treatment.
What you may feel.
Depending on the number of structures affected and the severity thereof, Shoulder pain may vary from a constant dull ache or shart shooting pain with weakness. Pain is usually aggravated with movement of the arm and comfortable positions include holding the arm to the chest, wearing a splint or immobilization.
What to Do

“I injured my shoulder surfing and was in pain for almost 9 months. I had tried rest, medication, massage and physical therapy. My Orthopedist suggested I consider surgey followed by 6-9 month of rehabilitation. A friend referred me to Dr. Robertson and am so lucky he did. Within 3 weeks I was almost pain free and within 3 months I was back in the water surfing. To think I was one week away from surgey and now I surfing pain free. Thank you Dr. Robertson.
