About Shoulder Pain

The shoulder is a fascinating joint that allows us to move our arms in any direction we desire. It is involved in highly-specialized activities like overhand throwing and weightlifting but is also crucial for simpler activities like dressing and pushing up out of a chair.

Due to its free range of motion, the shoulder is subject to frequent injury and dysfunction. Because the bones are so mobile, properly functioning ligaments, muscles and tendons are necessary to provide stability, strength and stamina to the shoulder joint.

There are a number of shoulder conditions that may cause pain, stiffness, instability, weakness and disrupted sleep.
