What is Causing my Shoulder Pain?

Shoulder pain has a variety of origins. You could’ve fallen while exercising, or maybe you have arthritis. You could have even overdone a chore as simple as painting. Let’s discuss some of the common causes of shoulder pain. 

Common Causes of Shoulder Pain


Over-rotation or pulling your shoulder back too hard can dislocate it from the socket. Common symptoms are pain, weakness, swelling, numbing, and bruising. 


Falling too hard or taking a rough hit can cause a bone to break or crack. Pain and lots of bruising are common results of this injury. In addition, you may notice your arm sagging and being unable to lift it. 

Frozen Shoulder

This condition is where abnormal bands of tissue or adhesions build up in the joint and keep it from moving freely. Frozen shoulder could be caused by pain or surgery that made you use your shoulder less. 


Impingement occurs when the rotator cuff tendons get pinched between the shoulder bones. Lifting your arms over your head a lot could be a simple trigger for this issue.
