Q: The pain in my shoulder has steadily gotten worse. It initially hurt with movement, now it hurts all the time.

A: You may have Rotator Cuff (RC) Tendonitis. Four muscles make up the rotator cuff and when one or more of them is injured, pain usually occurs. Weakness of the muscles allows the shoulder to ride up in the socket and cause inflammation. You may experience pain, weakness, inability to sleep on that shoulder and you may even hear or feel popping with movement. Treatment initially includes strengthening of the rotator cuff muscles. Those who do not respond to strengthening may need a cortisone injection and possibly surgery. Call for a Free Consultation!
