1.2 million people visited an emergency room for shoulder pain last year.

The shoulder is the most complicated joint in the human body. This ball and socket joint actually has four joints that connect your humerus, collarbone and shoulder blade and must function as one unit. Your shoulder has to be capable of moving through a wide range of motions while still maintaining strength and support. When this breaks down, either from stress, injury, weakness or poor posture, the pain can be debilitating. In fact, the pain can be so intense that in 2010, the United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention found that as many as 1.2 million people visited an emergency room for shoulder problems, and mainly for shoulder pain.

Shoulder pain can often originate from sports injuries or from strenuous activities. People who participate in sports or other vigorous exercises that use the shoulder joint are often performing repetitive, dynamic, overhead motions, such as throwing a baseball or rock climbing. This can place a lot of stress and pressure on the muscles and soft tissues.
