Physical examination by your doctor will include a neck examination as well as a thorough shoulder examination. Your doctor may watch your shoulder blades as they move to see if they are moving in a coordinated fashion. X-rays are usually obtained during an initial visit with your doctor.

Nonsurgical treatment consists of rest/activity modification, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medications, and physical therapy. If these do not relieve the symptoms, a steroid injection may be considered. Surgical treatment is usually only necessary when there is partial rotator cuff tear that is not responding to conservative treatment or when there is a complete rotator cuff tear.
