My arm started paining (between the elbow and shoulder) and the pain has spread up tp my shoulder and the back of my shoulder.. it hurts when i lift my arm or use it. it has gotten worse over the last couple of weeks. i have gone to the doctor but only received pain medication.. the whole shoulder, arm and neck feels stiff.

The cause of this could be one of a few things – frozen shoulder, rotator cuff impingement, calcific tendonitis or even a rotator cuff tear. You should see a shoulder specialist to make the diagnosis and suggest the appropriate treatment. You are welcome to contact us on 021 9111 017 for an appointment.
