Shoulder pain can be caused because of injury or a disease of shoulder joint. Injury can also affect any of the ligaments, burse, or tendons surrounding the shoulder joint.
It can also affect the ligaments, cartilage, menisci (plural for meniscus), and bones of the joint.
Sometimes we even don’t realize how much we depend on our shoulders until we can’t use due to pain. Understanding your shoulder pain can help you find relief and help your shoulder get back to doing all the things you need it to do.
Shoulder is the most moveable joint in the body, but also one of the most unstable one. This is why so many people experience shoulder pain at some point of time in their life.
The shoulder joint is highly dependent on the surrounding muscles and ligaments to hold it in place. As a result, it is easy for us to experience sprains, strains, dislocations, separations, tendinitis, torn rotator cuffs and fractures which are all potential causes of shoulder pain.
It is the most mobile joint in your body, the shoulder is made up of bones held in place by muscles, tendons, and ligaments. They are designed to work together to allow the shoulder to move freely in many different directions. This allows you to do everything from raising your arms over your head to throwing a baseball and even scratching your back. “Unfortunately, this mobility comes at the expense of stability,” and that leaves the shoulder vulnerable to injury.
You can have shoulder pain, injury to your rotator cuff is the most common and in a recent study, two-thirds of people with had a rotator cuff problem. A group of muscles and tendons that attach to the bones of the shoulder joint, the rotator cuff keeps the ball of your upper arm bone centered in your shoulder socket and also helps you raise and rotate your arm.
If you do the same motion over and over again can lead to inflammation of the rotator cuff tendons, also called tendonitis, which can cause shoulder pain. “The rotator cuff is like a tire and with aging or frequent use it gets thinner and thinner and eventually wears down.
