Of all the joints in the body, the shoulder probably offers the greatest range of movement. It is a relatively unstable joint because the ball of the humerus bone doesn’t fit into the shoulder joint completely. Any injury, swelling, tear or entrapment of tendons can cause pain in the shoulder.
Shoulder pain makes it very difficult for a person to use their arm for work, sports and even simple daily activities like wearing clothes. This can be very distressing.
Fortunately there are many good ways to treat shoulder pain very effectively.
Some common conditions causing pain in the shoulder include:
- Rotator cuff tears
- Frozen shoulder
- Dislocation of the joint
- Tendinitis (inflammation of a tendon)
- Arthritis of the shoulder
- A ruptured tendon

A thorough history of shoulder pain together with a detailed physical examination by a skilled doctor often reveals of the cause of shoulder pain. It is sometimes useful to further include investigations such as shoulder X-rays, ultrasounds or even an MRI to reach a more accurate diagnosis.

Dari semua sendi di tubuh, bahulah yang mungkin menawarkan pergerakan paling beragam walaupun sendi bahu relatif tidak stabil karena bola tulang humerus tidak sepenuhnya pas/sesuai dengan sendi bahu. Cedera, bengkak, robek, atau tendon yang terjepit dapat menyebabkan rasa sakit atau nyeri pada bahu. Beberapa kondisi umum yang menyebabkan nyeri pada bahu diantaranya:
- Robeknya otot rotator cuff pada bahu.
- Bahu kaku.
- Dislokasi sendi.
- Tendinitis (peradangan pada tendon).

Sakit bahu dapat juga menjadi sakit ‘rujukan’, yang artinya bahwa penyebab rasa sakit terdapat pada lokasi selain bahu.
