What Causes Shoulder Pain?

The shoulder has three main bones including the humerus (the arm bone), the clavicle (the collarbone), and the scapula (the shoulder blade). The bones are also covered by a layer of cartilage. ¹ The shoulder is often the most active joint in the human body, and some of the main causes of shoulder pain include;

  • Repetitive movements
  • Exercise
  • Injury

Sometimes, shoulder pain may also be a symptom of arthritis. Arthritis causes damage to the bones and cartilage, which can then cause joint pain, including shoulder pain. ² If the shoulder pain doesn’t get better after two weeks, or you are concerned about the pain, you should see your doctor or pharmacist for medical advice.
