Understanding Shoulder Pain

Shoulder pain can be excruciating and intensify with movement. The shoulder is where the upper arm bone, shoulder bones, and collarbone connect with the muscles, nerves, tendons, ligaments, and connective soft tissues. Along with that, your rotator cuff is comprised of a group of four muscles and tendons that hold the shoulder in place and allows you to raise and move your arm. Since the shoulder is such a complex structure, it is susceptible to various injuries.
