Dear Nandipa,

yes you are the right place. the type of pain you are complaining about can have a few causes:

1. Muscle spasm due to the stress is a possibility and a physiotherapist would be able to help you with that
2.pain on top of the shoulder - they should also check if it is not coming from your AC joint for which treatment can then be advised. ( look at our website: and then at "shoulder problem" and "AC joiny degeneration")

hope that helps you
