To the question ‘what causes shoulder pain?’ The simplest answer is that pain is often the result of excessive stress or strain on the small structures that surround the shoulder joint. The normally harmonious shoulder complex can be derailed by one part malfunctioning (i.e. weak rotator cuff, poor passive shoulder stability). For the strength athlete, these forces are usually the result of cumulative micro-trauma due to three things:

1) Imbalances between the prime movers and prime stabilizers

2) Instability

3) Poor movement and lifting technique
