2. Back Problems Without Back Pain
A 22-year-old male high school football coaching assistant is referred to physical therapy for R shoulder pain that is worse with throwing a football and better with rest. The pain is rated 7/10 on the NPRS, deep and sharp in nature with throwing the football. This has been occurring for 3 years and he has seen a PT and a chiropractor during this time, but has had no resolution of symptoms. He is a former D2 football player himself, but had no major injuries while playing football beyond some general soreness during his last year. However, he saw a chiropractor four months ago for hip pain and had TMJ pain one year ago, for which he was treated by a dentist.
