Frontal Shoulder Pain
My husband has a pain on the left side of the shoulder. Most of the pain is centered in front of the shoulder. He has a hard time in lifting his arm. We tried several exercises but it is not working. Next I will schedule an appointment, but in the meantime do you know what it could be???
This could be many things, rotator cuff tear or tendonitis. The best thing to do is to see your PCP or orthopedist. In the mean time he can take Naproxsyn or Advil.
