Shoulder pain in swimmers is often caused by rotator cuff irritation that occurs from overuse and emphasis on the internal rotation of the shoulder. This condition causes pain radiating down the arm.
Knee pain is a common ailment that affects thousands of people in the US each year. There are several different structures in the knee, each of which can be damaged by several different causes. Some of the most common causes of knee pain include:

The sciatic nerve is the longest nerve in the body, stretching from the end of the spinal cord to the end of each leg. This nerve is susceptible to pain caused by injury, herniated disc, spinal stenosis, piriformis syndrome, tumors or infection. Patients may experience pain radiating down the entire nerve, as well as numbness, tingling and muscle weakness. Most cases of sciatic pain go away within six to eight weeks, and can be prevented by stretching and practicing good posture.
