Shoulder Pain

Shoulder pain is discomfort that occurs in the joint that connects the arm to the upper body. Shoulder pain can extend beyond the shoulder and affect the neck, back, and arms. Shoulder pain may feel sharp or achy, and worsen when you try to move or rotate the shoulder joint. Shoulder pain can occur as a result of a number of injuries, but is often a sign of a tear in the rotator cuff, tendonitis, or bursitis in the shoulder. Shoulder pain can also be caused by arthritis, overuse of the shoulders, a fracture of one of the bones around the shoulder, or a torn tendon. Chronic shoulder pain can sometimes be a sign of multiple sclerosis (MS).
