Shoulder injuries are a relatively common phenomenon. Assessment and evaluation of shoulder problems requires a systematic approach that should be both comprehensive and efficient. It is one of the most difficult areas of the body to assess given its intricate makeup and structure and the demands placed on it. Diagnostic imaging including X-ray and MRI may be necessary to confirm the diagnosis.
