Causes of Common Shoulder Joint Pain

Did you know that your shoulder joint has the widest range of motion out of all the joints in your body?


Joints that have wide range of motion like the shoulder, jaw (TMJ) and hips are more vulnerable to injury and wear.  For shoulder pain, the cause is usually strained tendons, cartilage and capsule (rotator cuff) tears; inflamed bursa (the cushion around the joint), or thickened soft tissues getting stuck under the acromion (part of the shoulder blade) during movement (impingement syndrome).
