My Shoulder Hurts When I Lift My Arm?

Answer

If your shoulder hurts when you lift your arm it could be a result of an injured rotator cuff. If you have injured your rotator cuff you may just need physical therapy and home exercises. Your doctor will be able to give these exercises that you can do. If you are doing the therapy and the exercises at home and the pain is not getting better you will want to follow up with your doctor. Surgery may be an option to make your pain better.
