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.
