Front shoulder pain
Pain at the front of the shoulder or anterior pain can be acute or chronic. The bicep muscle and tendon is at the front of the shoulder and can be injured from a strain, tear or inflammatory response. The acromioclavicular joint or sternoclavicular joint can cause front shoulder pain. These joints can be swollen or can have sprain, torn or ruptured ligaments causing anterior pain that can be excruciating especially on movement.
