Various factors and conditions can cause shoulder pain. Here are some causes and prevention tips to be aware of.

Rotator Cuff Tendonitis

The most common cause of shoulder pain is rotator cuff tendinitis. In this case, inflammation begins in the tendons.


Injuries to any other part of the body can potentially cause shoulder pain. The most common cause of this is an injury to the neck, biceps, etc.

Frozen Shoulder

Shoulders that are frozen or stiff can also cause discomfort. When muscles, tendons, and ligaments become painful or stiff, movement becomes difficult or impossible.


Repetition of shoulder muscles and bones in the same direction and motion can also lead to shoulder pain.

Spinal Injury

Shoulder pain can signify more serious issues like a heart attack or spinal cord injury.

Prevention Tips

Shoulder exercises help stretch and strengthen the shoulder muscles and tendons of the rotator cuff. Take the help of a physical therapist, so you can learn how to do these exercises correctly.
