SHOULDER

 Shoulder

The shoulder complex is the most mobile and least stable joint in the body and therefore there is a high chance of injury or discomfort occurring. The shoulder complex is supported by ligaments and the joint capsule to provide a passive support to ensure the joint is protected. As well this, various muscles like the rotator cuff, deltoids, biceps and triceps and others all contribute to its stability as well as strength.

The shoulder complex also consists of the labrum and bursae. The labrum helps keep the bones of the shoulder in place. The labrum is at high risk of injury if the shoulder suffers or undergoes trauma. Shoulder injuries can be treated by both our Osteopaths and Physiotherapists and require a through assessment due to the complexity of the joint.
