What causes shoulder pain?

Posted on

Shoulder pain is common for people of all ages and professions. As the body ages, the tissues in the shoulder joint change, leading to various shoulder conditions that cause the shoulder pain.

The most common cause is the shoulder overuse, typical in older people, sports players and people who perform repetitive over-the-head motions on a daily basis. Shoulder pain can be also caused by a shoulder condition that occurred as a result of a trauma (direct fall) to the shoulder.
