Shoulder pain in children (junior shoulder) When the arm did not rise, I saw an 8-year-old child. When examined, there was pain in the upper part of the shoulder joint from about 120 degrees of external rotation and 90 degrees of flexion, and there was restriction of elevation. When raised by passive movement, there was a normal range of motion. This child seemed to be napping on the hard wooden floor. This shoulder joint disorder is a symptom that is sometimes seen in women in their 20s and 30s, but in the case of symptoms with elevation limitations, such as the child's arm not rising, subluxation of the acromioclavicular joint should be paid attention to. Try it if your child can't lift his arm because of pain! For example, if your child wakes up sleeping on a wooden floor, his arms no longer rise, or he sleeps in strange clothes and his arms do not rise.
