The joints of the shoulder are the most flexible in the body; however, the shoulder’s complete range of motion makes it highly susceptible to injury and strain. Tendonitis, bursitis, frozen shoulder, and shoulder impingement are leading causes of shoulder pain.
Shoulder injury, such as a rotator cuff injury or a shoulder labrum tear, involves damage to any part of the complex shoulder structure including the shoulder joint, tendons, or muscles. The term "rotator cuff" describes the four tendons that connect the bone of the upper arm to the shoulder socket. A labrum tear or labral tear involves damage to the cartilage that holds the bone of the upper arm, the humerus, in the shoulder socket.
