The shoulder is a joint consisting of bone, muscle, tendons and ligaments. Tendons are tissues that connect the muscles to the bones and help the muscles to move the shoulder. Ligaments connect bones and have a role to hold the bones together and thereby stabilize the joint.
Shoulder Pain, Shoulder Injuries, Shoulder Disorders and Treatment
The shoulder is the most movable joint of the body and therefore pain and injuries are relatively frequent occurrences. Its function depends on the simultaneous interaction between the static stabilizers as well as the dynamic ones. Because of its complexity, the shoulder is often called the shoulder complex. The loss of only one stability factor leads to a condition named “shoulder instability”.
