Shoulder

Our shoulders are a common source of aches and pains.

Shoulders are among the most dynamic and complex joints in the human body, and we often use them without even thinking about it in our day-to-day functions.

That’s why specialized knowledge and advanced care make such a difference in treating shoulder injuries and conditions.

Understanding the Shoulder

  • The shoulder is comprised of the clavicle (collarbone), scapula (shoulder blade), and humerus (upper arm bone), as well as many muscles, ligaments, and tendons.
  • Because our shoulders provide us with both mobility and stability—and we utilize them for lifting, pulling, and pushing—they are often a common source of aches and pains that arise from repetitive motion used in sports, at work, or during other activities.
