Shoulder3Most problems in the shoulder involve the muscles, ligaments, and tendons, rather than the bones. Athletes are especially susceptible to shoulder problems. In athletes, shoulder problems can develop slowly through repetitive, intensive training routines. Shoulder pain can often be quite debilitating, interfering with all aspects of daily living.

Locating the primary cause of the pain determines the type of treatment necessary to effectively eliminate the pain, and restore function and mobility to the shoulder.
