Understanding Shoulder Pain

Shoulder pain occurs in the region where the shoulder bone, upper arm bone, collarbone, tendons, connective tissues, and nerves connect. These bones and soft tissues are held together by the rotator cuff, which is made up of additional muscles and tendons. Since the shoulder is complex, it is vulnerable to injuries, overuse, and disease. If you are experiencing discomfort in your shoulder, it is important to seek treatment as soon as possible to prevent further complications.
