Causes of Shoulder Pain

The most common cause of shoulder pain is a result of injury to the rotator cuff, a group of 4 muscles and their tendons responsible for keeping the shoulder joint stable. This type if injury is common—either from accident or trauma, or with repeated overuse of the shoulder, and can affect individuals of all ages.  Athletes and heavy laborers are often affected; older adults can injure the rotator cuff when they fall on or strain the shoulder. When left untreated, a rotator cuff tear can cause severe pain and a decrease in the ability to use the arm.
