Got Shoulder Pain?
This May Be Why
While shoulder pain can affect anyone, athletes who compete in sports with repetitive overhead motions, like tennis, baseball, swimming and volleyball are especially susceptible to shoulder injury. With a complex connection of muscles, ligaments, tendons and nerves, the shoulder offers a wide range of motion and flexibility. While this is great for athletic and daily movement, the shoulder’s increased mobility makes it prone to a variety of injuries and problems with instability.
The shoulder is a ball-and-socket joint with intricate structures that can cause pain if they don’t function properly.
- Rotator cuff: collection of muscles and tendons that surround the shoulder, enabling a vast range of motion
- Bursa: small sac of fluid that protects the rotator cuff’s tendons
- Labrum: cup of cartilage that encircles the humerus to help keep the “ball” part of the joint in place
