It is usually caused by injury or aging. As we get older, soft tissues in the shoulder break down which can cause pain. And for younger people, overuse of the shoulder, specially if you’re playing sports such as tennis, baseball, basketball or hockey can be a risk that leads to shoulder pain. Even if you don’t do sports, repetitive activities, heavy loads, and poor posture can also lead to shoulder pain. Staying active and eating right will help you get better faster and prevent more problems.
