The shoulder is very mobile and one of the most used parts of the body. It is what allows your arms to perform simple routines such as doing dishes or throwing a ball.
The shoulder may be just a small part of the body, but it is made up of an intricate system of three main bones, two joints, and four tendons.
That means that there are that many places in which you can get an injury in that single part of the body.
Shoulder pain is much more common than you might think.
