Relieving Shoulder Pain and Improving Function to Get You Back to the Things You Enjoy
The Shoulder Joint
The shoulder joint is a ball and socket joint that connects the bones of the arms to the upper body through several important ligaments, tendons, cartilage, and muscles. The shoulder joint is the most mobile joint in the body and provides a wide range of motion, permitting athletes to throw a baseball 100 miles per hour or send a golf ball 515 yards.
Shoulder pain can range from mild to debilitating and may often affect a person’s quality of life. Shoulder pain often keeps people from wanting to move the shoulder joint and this can lead to a condition known as frozen shoulder.
