Pain Management for Shoulder Pain
Shoulder pain is any pain in or around the shoulder joint. Swelling, damage, or changes to the joint can cause shoulder pain. It can affect mobility and make performing daily activities difficult. The good news is our pain management physicians may be able to treat your shoulder pain with conservative, non-surgical options.
Causes of Shoulder Pain
Any injury to the shoulder can cause shoulder pain. Any degenerative disease in the shoulder can also cause pain. Causes may include:
- Frozen shoulder

Shoulder Pain Treatment
We always recommend conservative, non-surgical treatment options first. Those may include:

If non-surgical treatments don’t help, surgery may be recommended.
