A 55-year-old woman with 1 year of left shoulder pain
A 55-year-old right-hand dominant chef with a history of depression and tobacco use presented to our clinic with worsening atraumatic left shoulder pain. Her symptoms began insidiously approximately 1 year prior to presentation, and had recently begun to limit her activities of daily living. She described a constant dull pain, which escalated to sharp pain with activities that required reaching away from her body. She also reported pain that awakened her at night when she rolled onto her left side and noted associated shoulder weakness.
