Shoulder Pain: The shoulder has a wide range of motion and therefore when something goes wrong with your shoulder it impedes your ability to move freely, causing great pain and discomfort. The shoulder is a ball and socket joint which has three main bones, the humorous, clavicle and scapula, these bones are cushioned by cartilage. Shoulders gain range of motion from the rotator cuff. Rotator cuff is made up of four tendons. Tendons are the tissue which connects muscle to bone. The shoulder is at risk of injury through many activities. However, the rotator cuff can become inflamed or damaged due to overuse or trauma. Symptoms of shoulder pain include: pain or aching in the shoulder, referring pain down the arm into the elbow, pain aggravated by lifting over head or twisting and pain when lying on the shoulder, pain can also be felt when performing activities. In some instances shoulder pain can be referred from neck pains and may not truly be a shoulder pain.
