Shoulder Pain

The commonest symptoms affecting the shoulder include shoulder pain, stiffness and instability. Shoulder pain can come from the shoulder joint itself, which consists of the glenohumeral joint, the acromio-clavicular joint or the scapula-thoracic joint. It can also come from a pathology in the neck (this is called referred neck pain).
