A shoulder sprain is stretching or partial tearing of the ligaments and capsule that support the shoulder, specifically, the glenohumeral joint. Ligaments are strong bands of tissue that connect bones to each other. The glenhumeral joint is the meeting of the upper arm bone, humerous, and the cup of the shoulder blade.
