Shoulder Pain in Athletes

The shoulder is the most movable joint in the body. But it also is an unstable joint because of its range of motion. Shoulder injuries in athletes are frequently caused by activities that involve excessive, repetitive, overhead motion, such as swimming, tennis, pitching and weightlifting.

Most problems in the shoulder involve the muscles, ligaments and tendons, rather than the bones. Athletes are especially susceptible to shoulder problems, which can develop slowly through repetitive, intensive training routines.

Stay in the game. Don’t delay care.
