The range of motion of the shoulder is extensive and adaptable. When something goes wrong with your shoulder, it restricts your mobility and can cause a lot of pain and discomfort.
Shoulder pain can be caused by a variety of factors and diseases. Rotator cuff tendinitis is the most common cause.
The type and severity of treatment will be determined by the reason and severity of the shoulder discomfort. Physical or occupational therapy, a sling or shoulder immobilizer, or surgery are some of the treatment possibilities.
Other causes of shoulder pain include:
Pinched nerve in the neck or shoulder
Torn rotator cuff
Swollen bursa sacs or tendons
Broken shoulder or arm bone
Injury due to overuse or repetitive use
Spinal cord injury
