Causes of Shoulder Pain

There are muscles, ligaments, bursae sacs that all can be affected by a trauma to the body These provide cushioning from the friction caused by the rubbing of bones, muscle, and tissue. If these sacs become inflamed, you will feel stiffness and pain in the shoulder.
One of the most common injuries to the shoulder is a tear in the rotator cuff. When you overuse your shoulders, you can push the muscles and tendons to their limits, which can result in a tear.
