The shoulder is the most mobile joint in the body which makes it prone to a vast array of conditions and injuries. Some of the most common reasons for shoulder pain include:

  • Neck and Back problems
  • Rotator Cuff tears and injuries
  • Arthritis
  • Athletic injuries
  • Auto accidents

Shoulder pain can develop rapidly or gradually. Minor injuries can worsen over time and should be treated appropriately to help prevent any further problems. There are times where the actual pain is coming from the neck and not the shoulder. The following are a list of symptoms to be aware of when dealing with shoulder problems:

  • Difficulty raising your arm over your head
  • Pain or difficulty while carrying or lifting objects
  • Evening and night pain
  • Pain lasting more than a week
  • Popping or clicking in your shoulder
