Understanding Shoulder Pain
Shoulder pain is one of the most common conditions treated by physicians at the Orthopedic & Spine Centers of Wisconsin. Shoulder pain may make it difficult to do things like get dressed, work, or even sleep.
The shoulder is made up of three bones, the scapula (shoulder blade), clavicle (collarbone), and humerus (upper arm bone), that fit together like a ball and socket. The shoulder is one of the most mobile joints in the body and provides a wide range of motion.
Shoulder injuries can be caused by a sudden impact, such as falling or a collision, or over time due to wear and tear to the cartilage, tendons, and ligaments within the shoulder.
