Right Shoulder Pain
Shoulder pain is a common symptom and there can be a number of causes with shoulder pain and neck pain going together very frequently. Further information on shoulder pain is available at NHS Choices and Arthritis Research UK.
The Cause of Shoulder Pain
Pain described as being in the shoulder area can cover a relatively wide region of the upper part of the body, including the low neck, shoulder blade, shoulder itself and down the upper arm. The potential causes of shoulder pain include:
Right shoulder pain may occur more commonly than left shoulder pain as most people are right handed and will use their right shoulder much more vigorously, looking over to the right repetitively as they perform activities. This may bring on changes in the tissues of the shoulder and the right sided neck joints which can give symptoms. While there are other potential causes of shoulder pain, cancer is very uncommon.
