What causes shoulder pain?

 

 

Shoulder pain is an incredibly popular complaint and is characterized by pain in the shoulder, across the base of the neck, or even into other areas of the arm.

The shoulder is made up of several different joints, including the humerus, the scapula, the clavicle, and many bones, ligaments, tendons, and muscles to aid in movement. These joints work together to allow for a range of motion in your arm, everything from lifting weights to lifting a fork.

Shoulder pain can be a sign of deeper underlying injuries, such as frozen shoulder, tendonitis or even from your neck. It can easily occur in the left or right shoulder, or both, depending on how you use it. If left untreated, shoulder pain can lead to further pain, disability, frustration, and decreased quality of life.

  • AC Joint Sprain
