What is Shoulder Pain ?

Shoulder pain is any pain in or around the shoulder joint. There are four muscle tendons that connect to the shoulder that make up the rotator cuff. Together these four tendons stabilize the upper arm bone to the shoulder socket and allow the wide range of motion in the shoulder.


The most common cause of shoulder pain occurs when rotator cuff tendons become trapped under the bony area in the shoulder. The tendons become inflamed or damaged. This condition is called rotator cuff tendinitis or bursitis.


  • Exposed bone or tendon.
  • Deformity to the shoulder joint.
  • Severe pain.
  • Sudden swelling.
  • An inability to raise your arm.
