What Is Shoulder Pain?

The shoulder is made up of a socket and a ball-type of a joint. It plays a massive role in weight lifting and helps you perform many different kinds of movements. Since it is used so frequently, your shoulder becomes prone to lots of injuries. Shoulder pain is any pain you experience in your shoulders, though sometimes it may radiate to the arms or back.

What Causes Shoulder Pain?

Shoulder pain can be acute or chronic. Some significant causes of shoulder pain include:

  • A dislocated shoulder
  • Rotator cuff injuries
  • Muscle strains and sprains
  • Arthritis
  • A frozen shoulder
  • A shoulder bursae condition
  • Tendinitis
