Golf shoulder pain is actually less common than lower back pain or elbow injuries but it is still quite common. The repetitive action of swinging a club overhead causes inflammation in the tendons and bursa in this area which leads to pain. Once this pain sets in the recovery process can be lengthy but achievable. It is important to remember that as we get older the makeup of our tendons and muscles change. This means that the stresses we placed on them in our 20's are more than likely to cause problems in our 40' and 50's and older. This doesn't mean you have to give up the game, you simply have to add some things to your regimen to stay healthy and injury free.If you are a younger golfer don't think you are immune to shoulder pain or injury. The same type of action in golf can predispose you to the same problems that an older golfer may experience. In some cases you may be more susceptible to injury if your game is not disciplined and you try for the monster drive every time you tee off. Excessive force at excessive speeds places a great deal of stress on the rotator cuff tendons and muscles.If you have a history of golf shoulder pain or are experiencing pain right now you need to start addressing the most common problems that lead to this. These are poor flexibility and weakness of the muscles controlling the shoulder girdle complex. These problems lead to poor biomechanics during your swing which will lead to an inflammatory process. These poor mechanics can be corrected with stretching and strengthening.
