Hi there. Thank you for posting your question with Healthcaremagic. I will do my best to help you.

Your wife is probably suffering from a rotator cuff injury. She needs gentle physiotherapy and analgesics like paracetamol.

But she also needs an accurate diagnosis and this might mean seeing a specialist in shoulder pain. She may need X-rays and MRI scan. Just injecting steroids here and there is not going to cure this.

I hope that I have answered your questions fully and been of some help. If you have anymore questions please contact me again anytime.

Dr Andrew Rynne.
