Strains from overexertion
Tendonitis from overuse
Shoulder joint instability
Collar or upper arm bone fractures
Pinched nerves (also called radiculopathy)

to stiffness of the joint. Physical therapy and stretching are extremely
important aspects of treatment.
Calcific tendonitis is a condition of calcium deposits within a tendon --
