If ever you feel some pain in your rotator cuff that seem not to respond well to medications or any physical exercises and medications, then you should consider changing your pain management method. Before anything else, however, it is a must that you undergo a series of test to ensure that the treatment you are getting is the right one. So what should you expect?
Basically, the doctor will do a physical assessment first and will ask you to do some movements such as moving your shoulders and arms in different directions. Doing so allows the doctor to determine which parts are having some pain. Typically, this test will suffice. But one may also have to undergo other tests such as X-ray, MRI, or ultrasound to rule out any other medical conditions that may have resulted to pain.
