Shoulder is made of several joints that combine with muscles, ligaments, and tendons called the rotator cuff. It is where the collarbone, shoulder blade, and arm bone come together. Of all the joints in the body, the shoulder allows the widest range of motion – your arm can reach up, behind, and across the body, to scratch your back or to throw a perfect pitch.
However, this great mobility has its price. Problems with instability or impingement of the soft tissue or bony structures in your shoulder can result in severe pain in the shoulder, upper arm, and neck. Sometimes the pain can radiate to your elbow and fingers too. The pain can come with movement or persist all the time. It may be temporary, or it may continue and require medical diagnosis and treatment.
