Shoulder: Injuries & Conditions

Shoulder

The main shoulder joint is a ball and socket joint known as the glenohumeral - and has the broadest range of motion of any joint in the body.

Common shoulder injuries include rotator cuff tears, shoulder instability, shoulder dislocation, shoulder impingement and clavicular fractures. Read More
