What Is Shoulder Pain?

Your shoulder is the most mobile joint in your body. It's held tight by your rotator cuff, the muscles and tendons that stabilize the joint and give your shoulder its wide range of motion. Any damage, inflammation or changes to the bone around the rotator cuff can lead to shoulder pain. 

Here are some signs that something may be wrong with your shoulder:

  • Shoulder stiffness

  • Pain when lifting your arm above your head

  • Discomfort when moving it back and forth

  • Muscle spasms

  • One shoulder appears lower than the other

  • Inability to move your shoulder

  • Numbness or tingling

  • Arm weakness

  • Rotator cuff tendonitis

  • Rotator cuff tear

  • Arthritis

  • Nerve injury
