Shoulder Pain

Composed of the clavicle, scapula, and humerus, the shoulder is one of the body’s most complicated joints. Its ball and socket formation make it the most movable joint in the human body; unfortunately this also causes the shoulder to become unstable which can lead to various problems and conditions.

Pain in the shoulder can be caused by underlying diseases or conditions affecting the surrounding ligaments or muscles. People experiencing shoulder stiffness or pain often exhibit restriction in their range of motion and movement within their tendons and muscles. The pain often begins as a dull aching sensation and becomes a much sharper and intense feeling when performing any shoulder-intensive activity. While shoulder injuries can be temporary, they can often require, or benefit greatly from, surgery.
