Shoulder pain not healing

My husband went for a short weekend trip from his byke and since he has come back, right after 3 days, he started experiencing pain in his shoulder. I thought it is just a muscle pain due to the hectic and constant driving, and I applied all the necessary creams like Dynaper Gel, IOdex along with hot water bag, went for some medications through one of the physicians from Yatharth Hospital itself, but all in vain. The pain is getting worse and he is unable to sleep now as it gets intense when he tries to sleep. Kindly recommend me what can be done. Thank you, Nitya
