The shoulder is the most movable joint in the body, which also makes it the most likely to incur injury. The rotator cuff tendons hold the muscle to the bone and allow a wide range of motion. Shoulder pain is typically generated in the neck and caused by conditions such as shoulder dislocation, arthritis, shoulder fracture, frozen shoulder, shoulder tendonitis, shoulder bursitis, rotator cuff tear and shoulder separation.
Shoulder pain can also be caused by ailments in other parts of the body such as the heart, liver or other organs. This pain is called referred pain. Proper diagnosis of shoulder pain is crucial so that the correct treatment plan can be offered.
