The shoulder is a ball-and-joint socket, cushioned by a layer of cartilage. The shoulder is the most mobile joint and an important area of the body as it makes it possible for your arm to move in a circular motion. Shoulder pain can be caused by an injury, repetitive movements due to the nature of your job or degeneration of the joint associated with age. Find out the cause of your shoulder pain with the help of some information below.
