Shoulder pain and its cause

The shoulder is the most moveable joint in the human body. It is composed of a group of four muscles and their tendons. This group is called the rotator cuff, a group of muscles which connect the shoulder to the arm and it is the rotator cuff which gives the shoulder such a wide range of movement. If the rotator cuff is damaged in any way caused by injury or the aging process it might include swelling, or bone changes around this area and cause pain. Pain can occur when raising the arm above your head or moving the arm back and forth. Sometimes shoulder pain may be due to a problem in another area of the body, such as the neck or lungs. This is called referred pain and usually causes pain at rest but no worsening of pain when moving the shoulder.
