What most people call the shoulder is really several joints that combine with tendons and muscles to allow a wide range of motion to the arm, from scratching your back to throwing the perfect pitch. Mobility has its price, however and can lead to increasing problems that result in pain. You may feel pain only when the shoulder is moved, or all of the time. The pain may be temporary and disappear in a short time, or it may continue and require medical diagnosis and treatment. Shoulder problems can be related to an accident or trauma, or due to overuse of your muscles and joints during sports, exercise, everyday activities, or repetitive activities.
