A shoulder sprain refers to an injury to the muscles, tendons and/or ligaments around the shoulder joint. Depending on the severity of the injury to the shoulder structures, treatments may include simple observation, immobilization or surgical repair. The above injury may cause short term versus long term problems and therefore appropriate evaluation, diagnostic work up and treatment should be performed in an efficient manner.
