The shoulder has a wide and versatile range of motion. When something goes wrong with your shoulder, it hampers your ability to move freely and can cause a great deal of pain and discomfort, sometimes with the smallest movement.
The shoulder joint is the most mobile joint in the body. The rotator cuff helps it move the shoulder forward and backward. It also allows the arm to rotate in a circular motion and to move up and away from the body.
There are four tendons in the rotator cuff. Tendons connect the muscles to the bone. If they are damaged or swollen, it may be painful or difficult to lift your arm over your head.
There are many ways you can injure your shoulder. It can happen while performing manual labor, playing sports, or even by a small repetitive movement. Certain diseases can also be associated with pain that can travel to the shoulder. These include diseases of the cervical spine (neck), as well as liver, heart, or gallbladder disease.
