Your shoulders are pivotal joints that facilitate a wide range of movements. They allow you to easily reach, lift, throw, and perform countless other activities. However, their complex structure makes them susceptible to injury.
As the shoulder is the most movable joint in the human body, shoulder pain is one of the most common health issues associated with sports, performance, and everyday life. A group of four muscles and their tendons, called the rotator cuff, give the shoulder its wide range of motion. Swelling, damage, or bone changes around the rotator cuff can cause shoulder pain.
A variety of factors, including overuse, overextension, trauma, and repetitive motion, can cause shoulder pain. You may have pain when lifting the arm above your head or moving it forward or behind your back.
Whether you’re an avid athlete, a dedicated professional, or simply want to maintain an active and healthy lifestyle, shoulder pain can be a significant obstacle. It can disrupt your daily activities and prevent you from pursuing the things you love.

The symptoms of a shoulder injury can manifest in various ways, from persistent pain and limited range of motion to subtle discomfort during routine activities.
- Dull, aching pain
- Sharp, stabbing pain
- Pain that worsens with movement

Sudden left shoulder pain can sometimes be a sign of a heart attack. Call 911 or the local emergency number if you have sudden pressure or crushing pain in your shoulder, especially if the pain runs from your chest to the left jaw, arm or neck, or occurs with shortness of breath, dizziness, or sweating.
