Pain in left shoulder
My mom is having pain in her left shoulder . She is not able to rotate her left hand completely without pain. Which doctor to consult orthopaedic or physiotherapy? She told that there is something if we apply that in affected area then it may solve the pain. She can't remember. Is there any such thing? To get relief from pain can she take any pain killer like diploma tab?
