What increases the chances of developing shoulder pain?

Swimming - especially butterfly and freestyle - are tough on your rotator cuff muscles. Throwing games such as cricket or baseball, high-impact sports and repetitive actions are also major risk factors for shoulder pain. Having an underlying condition such as diabetes, or arthritis and also having had a previous injury or surgery will also raise your chances of shoulder pain.
