Shoulder pain is very common and can happen in young, middle-aged and elderly people. In fact, this is becoming more prevalent as more people get physically active.
While the shoulder joint is capable of moving through a much greater range than any other joint in the body, in multiple directions, it also must be strong and stable enough to lift heavy items, throw things, and at times support our body weight.
One should not ignore signs of aching, sharp, radiating, or burning pain in the shoulder as the type of pain may be an indication of more serious conditions, depending on the shoulder problem you have, as well as other factors, such as your unique anatomy, posture, habits, and lifestyle.
