The shoulder is one of the most complex joints in the body. The humerus, clavicle, and scapula need to work as a cohesive unit to elevate the arm. The shoulder complex is a joint designed for mobility - to allow the hand to be positioned at any point in space. Due to the high level of mobility, the shoulder relinquishes stability. The constant battle between mobility and desired stability puts the shoulder at high risk for instability, dysfunction, and injury. Over time, repetitive motions especially with improper body mechanics and/or lack of strength and stability, can result in injury. If you or someone you know is struggling with shoulder pain or injury, give the team at South Texas Bone & Joint a call. Making, Your Care. Our Priority.
