While most people believe a shoulder injury arises from sports like tennis or swimming, any repetitive motion such as gardening, yard work or even hanging curtains can result in a strain in the upper arm or shoulder. A dislocated shoulder -- where the top of the upper arm bone (humerus) has popped out of the socket -- can result from a sudden, strong force pushing against the shoulder. While the pain can be resolved by popping the bone back into the socket, the tendons supporting the shoulder will needs a physician's care to heal properly.
If a shoulder is stiff, does not allow for full rotation, or lacks the strength for common daily activities, make an appointment to see an orthopedic physician for proper treatment.
