Causes of Shoulder Pain
Shoulder pain can originate in the joint itself or from the surrounding muscles, ligaments or tendons. The most common cause of shoulder pain occurs when the tendons of the rotator cuff becomes trapped under a bony area of the shoulder called the acromioclavicular joint (AC joint). These tendons become inflamed making it difficult to raise your arm overhead and out to the side. This is referred to as rotator cuff tendinitis.
Rotator Cuff Tendinitis and shoulder bursitis most likely stems from repetitive movement, as well as chronic poor posture and can be referred to as impingement syndrome. Over a period of time the tendons of the rotator cuff can become damaged to the point of needing surgical repair.
Other conditions that can cause shoulder pain are arthritis, frozen shoulder (adhesive capsulitis), shoulder instability and referred pain from the neck. Shoulder pain can be a result of an injury from over use and poor training during exercise and/or sports.
