Health Tip: When a Shoulder Injury Needs Treatment

Signs of a more serious problem

(HealthDay News) -- While shoulder injuries are common, some signal a more serious issue that needs to be addressed by a doctor.

The American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons mentions these warning signs that a doctor needs to treat a shoulder injury:

  • Stiffness that prevents you from rotating the shoulder in all directions.
  • Feeling as though your shoulder will pop out of its socket or slide around.
  • Insufficient strength in the shoulder to allow you to perform daily tasks.
