Perhaps you felt your shoulder pop while playing racquetball, or maybe you slipped on the sidewalk and fell on it. Whatever the circumstances that led to your injury, you can tell that your shoulder is not 100 percent.
Shoulder injuries often demand orthopedic treatment. Especially when the tissues of the rotator cuff tear, or the joint falls out of alignment, the shoulder can remain impaired until an orthopedist assesses the condition. Pain is often a sign that your shoulder has suffered some type of damage. Even if you are not experiencing chronic discomfort, though, you may still require professional care. Recurrent arm weakness may denote a shoulder problem. The shoulder is a ball-and-socket joint, but if you don’t have full range of motion, this symptom too could indicate that you need to see an orthopedic doctor.
