Hello,

* The mode of origin of shoulder pain can give a specific clue to underlying issue as bursa problem, rotator cuff injury, nerve compression or else.
* Though primary relief with heating pad application and analgesic medications, it is mandatory to get a physical evaluation with your doc for evaluation the motor, sensory function with a range of movement evaluation to look into the cause and further care plan.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Regards,
