The shoulder comprises several joints that are held in place by tendons, muscles, and ligaments to allow a wide range of motion to the arm. It is the most mobile and one of the most potentially unstable joints in the body.
According to the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, approximately 6 million people seek help for shoulder pain each year. When experienced, shoulder pain may be localized or felt in areas around the shoulder or down the arm. Causes of shoulder pain include age-related degeneration of the surrounding soft tissues, strain and overuse activities, and trauma.
