Shoulder pain treatment in Atlanta is the topic of this blog post by Dr. Castanet. He discusses the differential diagnosis of shoulder pain, typical shoulder pain distribution and provocative maneuvers, and the more common presentations of neck pain, which can seem like a shoulder problem, with referred and radiating pain from neck lesions.

Differentiating shoulder joint pains from referred neck pain can be a tricky matter, even for professionals. And sometimes, of course, shoulder and neck pathology and pain co-exist. How do we distinguish these? How do we treat them? Did you know that sometimes treatment is required to make the diagnosis?
