Shoulder Pain

What causes shoulder pain? Well, the shoulder is the most mobile joint in the human body, with four tendons that hold muscle to bone. Together, these four “rotator cuff” tendons stabilize the upper arm bone (the humerus) to the shoulder socket and allow a wide range of motion in the shoulder.

When these tendons are strained, whether due to injury or overexertion, shoulder pain is an extremely common complaint. This is why it is important to make an accurate diagnosis of the cause of your symptoms so that appropriate treatment can be directed at the cause. If you are unsure of the cause of your shoulder pain, or if you do not know the specific treatment recommendations for your condition, you should seek medical attention. Treatment of these conditions must be directed at the specific cause of your problem.
