Pain in the shoulder can be the result of a number of causes that can include muscle or joint strain, sprain due to the lifting of heavyweight, or any other injury. Sometimes an old injury may also result in pain at a much later stage in life, which becomes chronic pain when ignored. Shoulder pain can also be due to tendinitis, swelling of tendons that attach the muscles to the joint. You can experience symptoms like inflammation or tension in the muscles and tendons around the shoulder.
