Shoulder pain can be caused by a wide variety of things, including a subluxation, or vertebral misalignment, or injury.

Most often, shoulder pain can be traced to tenderness or soreness of the rotator-cuff tendon. The rotator cuff is the part of the shoulder that allows you to move your arms in a circular motion.

In other cases, the bursa, or fluid sack, in your upper shoulder can become inflamed after a period of heavy lifting or other kind of physical activity involving repeated raising and lowering of the arms.
