The shoulder is a very mobile joint. Pain can originate from the shoulder itself or from surrounding muscles and tendons. It usually worsens with movement. If you or your child has shoulder pain, your physician will usually try conservative, non-invasive treatments before suggesting shoulder surgery. Surgery may be arthroscopy, laparoscopic surgery, or open surgery.
