Most shoulder pain originates from the soft tissues, muscles, ligaments, and tendons, rather than bones. Shoulder pain is an extremely common complaint that can have many different causes. It is best to consult with Dr. Hirsh, Dr. Singh, Dr. Kapelow, Javier Chiriboga, or Physician Assistant Evan Abramsky to determine what is causing the pain.
