About Shoulder Pain

The human shoulder is made up of namely three bones: the humerus (or upper arm bone), scapula (or shoulder blade), and clavicle (or collarbone). However, to remain fully functional, a combination of tendons and muscles work simultaneously.

Unfortunately, shoulder pains are fairly common. The pain itself may build on gradually in terms of intensity or abruptly as the shoulder experiences a strain, sprain, or tear.
Shoulder pain is likely to be the result of:

  • Fracture
    Broken bones are bound to hurt — shoulder fractures are largely the result of falls and high-energy injuries that may also cause swelling and bruising around the shoulder.
  • Arthritis
    More often than not, shoulder pain results from arthritis; that’s recognized with symptoms such as pain, stiffness, and swelling. Osteoarthritis (also known as wear and tear) is the most common form of arthritis in the shoulders that develops slowly but worsens significantly in terms of pain over time.
  • Dislocations
    Overuse or sudden injury is likely to cause a shoulder dislocation. A condition in which the head of the humerus is pushed out of the socket either partially or completely. The sad part is, dislocations repeatedly occur after the ligaments, muscles, and tendons tear or loosen up.
  • Bursitis
    Firstly, bursitis is a form of inflammation of the fluid-filled sac located in the shoulder joints due to excessive use.
  • Tendonitis
    Secondly, acute or chronic tendinitis may also affect the bicep tendons alongside the rotator cuff tendons.
