Shoulder injuries can appear in different ways — being unable to raise your arm or carry objects; discomfort that occurs only at night or while resting; swelling, bruising and more. Many people experience shoulder pain at different times in their lives, from a number of different causes. These can include rotator cuff tears or tendonitis, shoulder separation (also known as AC separation), shoulder dislocation, osteoarthritis and torn labrums. Certain labral tears are called SLAP tears or SLAP lesions.
