Shoulder injuries can be a major threat to the health and well-being of workers on the job in Chicago. For people who do a lot of heavy lifting or use machines repeatedly, an injury to the shoulder can cause serious pain and even disability.

Despite their severity, these kinds of injuries are all too common in the workplace; every year, around 2 million Americans see a doctor due to a rotator cuff problem.
