Dear Mary,

in all due respect, the diagnosis of "pain point" is very vague and will not help you . Before any treatment can be suggested a diagnosis (cause of the pain ) has to be made. The one possibility in your case could be a Calcific tendintis ( look at our website at www.shoulderinstitute.co.za at both the sections for Calcifc tendinitis and "shoulder pain") for more information.

i hope you can have it sorted out,
