Leaders in the Expert Treatment of Shoulder Injuries and Conditions
The shoulder is one of the most complex and frequently stressed joints in your body. When your shoulder is affected by an injury or condition, it can make everyday activities especially difficult. One study found that shoulder pain affects 18-26% of adults at any given time, making it one of the most common causes of pain.
The shoulder is comprised of three bones: the upper arm bone (humerus), shoulder blade (scapula), and collarbone (clavicle). The head of the upper arm bone sits within a socket called a glenoid. A network of muscles and tendons (rotator cuff) cover the head of the upper arm bone and secure it within the socket.
A shoulder injury is often the result of a sports injury, accident, repetitive motion, or gradual wear and tear over time. The symptoms can range from mild to intense, depending on the injury’s degree of severity.
