Shoulder Pain

Your shoulder is a complex joint, and injuries to any of the muscles, ligaments,and bones working together can cause complications and pain. Shoulder injuries can often be the primary cause of other issues, such as elbow pain. Because the shoulder is one of the most mobile joints in the body, it can be very unstable and the source of frequent injury. Shoulder pain can be traced to repetitive movements, improper exercise techniques, injuries caused by lifting a heavy object repeatedly or incorrectly, and more.

Some of the most common causes of shoulder pain we encounter and treat at A Step Ahead Physical Therapy are:

  • Rotator cuff tendinitis
