In order to diagnose you properly, your doctor will consider your symptoms and examine your shoulder and neck to ensure that your pain isn’t caused by a pinched nerve, arthritis or another condition. You will be asked to perform a few simple movements, too, so that your doctor can measure your range of motion. Your doctor may also require you to have X-rays to look for contributing bone issues, including spurs or calcifications and a MRI to look more closely at the soft tissue (muscles and tendons) of the joint.
