This pain and inflammation can be caused by too much stress or tears. Hopefully it is because of too much stress. This is less serious than the labrum tears and a labrum tear is less serious than a rotator cuff tear. All to be taken seriously in their own matter.

Inflammation and pain can cause stress by trying to get in shape too fast or just throwing too much. This can be fixed by cutting back on throwing, icing your arm, and anti-inflammatory pills. Rehab exercises are also good.

Patience is the key when coming off an overuse injury. Coming back too soon may put you back on recovery time. Be patient and make sure you are 100% before you get back out there to throw.

The last reason for shoulder pain can be due to labrum tears. The labrum's job is to stabilize the shoulder. It is a cartilage that goes around the socket. If there are tears in the labrum the sh
