Shoulder pain can typically be caused by muscular imbalances within the shoulder. As a general rule, there are certain muscles or muscle groups that are typically too strong, too weak, or well balanced:

  1. Typically too strong or tight:
    1. Pectoralis major, upper trapezius, deltoids, biceps, triceps, infraspinatus
  2. Typically too weak or loose:
    1. Serratus anterior, middle & lower trapezius, rhomboid major/minor, latissimus doors, and supraspinatus
  3. Typically well balanced:
    1. Pectoralis minor, levator scapulae, subclavius, coracobrachialis, teres major/minor, subscapularis
