Shoulder Pain: Causes and Treatment
Shoulder pain experienced while trying to accomplish everyday tasks is common. Some people feel a sharp or “pinching” pain at the top of their shoulder and/or at the outside of the arm halfway between the elbow and shoulder.
In this article, Steve Miller tells us about where the pain could possibly come from. A major possibility is when rotator cuff muscles become weak, injured or imbalanced. When this happens, the rotator cuffs are unable to work effectively to help the shoulder perform pain-free functions.
In many cases, physical therapy is used to strengthen the rotator cuff muscles, which will get rid of the pain.
