normal, everyday tasks, so it is critical that you identify the source
of your pain and seek treatment immediately. If your shoulder hurts so

Common Culprits of Shoulder Pain
If you are experiencing shoulder pain, it could be coming from a number
of different sources, and it is critical to know the source. Possible
- Locked shoulder muscles
- Rotator cuff damage
- Inflammation of the shoulder joint (bursitis)
- Separated shoulder
- Ruptured or torn tendon
- Ruptured or torn cartilage
- Broken bone or sprain in the arm or shoulder
- Impending heart attack
In order to definitively determine the cause of shoulder pain, you must
first consult with a medical professional and receive a formal evaluation.
If it occurs because of an underlying issue, it is unlikely to go away
unless that underlying issue is treated directly. “Pushing through
the pain,” on the other hand, can significantly worsen the underlying
issue and lead to long-term physical harm to your shoulder and the joints,
bones, muscles, and tendons in and around it.
