#1 Cause of Shoulder Pain. Shoulder Osteoarthritis. 

Osteoarthritis.
Also known as degenerative arthritis, osteoarthritis is a ‘wearing out’ condition, which is involved in the breakdown of cartilage in the joints. This joint cartilage is a gel-like substance, which provides support and lubrication to the joints. When this cartilage wears away, the bones rub against each other leading to pain and stiffness and thus causing osteoarthritis.
