What causes shoulder pain?
There are many possible reasons for shoulder pain. Causes vary from overuse to overexertion, accidents, diseases, and can even be due to problems elsewhere on your body. Your age can play a factor too. For younger people, pain is often a result of repetitive movements from sports such as baseball or tennis, or as a result of accidents during more aggressive sports such as football , rugby or lacrosse. Among older generations, challenges often arise from arthritis, bursitis, or as a result of heart or gallbladder disease. The design of the shoulder joint fosters mobility at the cost of stability and is always at risk of injury. Other less likely factors could relate to infections, tumors, or nerve issues.
