Common causes and management of shoulder pain

Date Uploaded: 14/10/2012
Your shoulder is made up of three bones: your upper arm bone (humerus), your shoulder blade (scapula), and your collarbone (clavicle). The muscles of the shoulder either connect the scapula and clavicle to the trunk, or connect the clavicle, scapula and body wall to the top end of the humerus. Dr. Ali Mofty, discusses the anatomy of the shoulder and the several common conditions causing shoulder pain. Some common causes include inflammation or injury of the shoulder muscles, which are called the rotator cuff. Also, in some complicated diabetes, shoulder pain, known as frozen shoulder is common. Early diagnosis and treatments are essential to avoid further complications.
