Shoulder pain explained
The shoulder has a wide and versatile range of motion, when it is restricted from moving freely from an injury or illness this can become very painful and cause a lot of discomfort.
The shoulder explained
The shoulder is made up of three bones, including the collarbone (clavicle), the upper arm bone (humerus) and the shoulder blade (scapula). The head of your upper arm bone fits into a rounded socket in your shoulder blade. To keep your arm centred in your shoulder socket there are a combination of muscles and tendons.
