The shoulder is the most mobile joint in the human body, capable of a nearly 360 degree range of motion. According to the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, an estimated 4 million people seek medical assistance for shoulder and upper arm strains and sprains each year.
Shoulder injuries can be caused by sports activities that involve overhead motion like swimming, tennis, pitching and weightlifting. People who do repetitive overhead movements in everyday life like painting, construction, and gardening are also susceptible to conditions ranging from sprains, strains and arthritis to tendonitis, bursitis, frozen shoulder and torn rotator cuffs.
