Shoulder

The majority of shoulder pain problems involve the muscles, ligaments, cartilage, and tendons. In particular, athletes and skilled workers are especially susceptible to issues involving shoulder blade pain or shoulder joint pain. Because of repetitive, intensive routines, shoulder pain can develop over time.
