There are a number of expanations for your pain. Depending on your age it might be due to an irritation or even a tear in the rotator cuff. If you are over 40 years then this is a possibility. Alternatively, you may have an injury to the labrum. This is the lining of the joint which forms an anchoring point for the biceps tendon and the ligaments of the shoulder. With forceful overhead motions, this attachment point can be pulled off the way a rope might pull off an anchor to which it is attached. If your pain persists you should seek out a specialist who is knowledgable about such shoulder problems. He or she might order an MRI, but therapy would be a reasonable first start. Finally, your pain might be due to your technique. This might be addressed by a trainer or teacher in your sport.
