It shouldn’t hurt to put on your shirt

Do you experience pain when putting on a shirt or brushing your hair?

What about other types of SHOULDER PAIN, such as:

  • Pain on the outside of your shoulder
  • Pain may spread down your arm towards the elbow or wrist
  • Pain when lying on your affected shoulder
  • Pain when using your arm above your head
  • Painful arc of movement – shoulder pain between 60–90 degrees moving the arm up and outwards
