Shoulders

22 May 2019

Shoulders…fantastically mobile joints, and fantastically functioning joints as long as they're stable.

The shoulder (glenohumeral) joint itself is the relationship between the 'ball' of the humerus (arm bone) and the 'socket' of the glenoid of the scapula (shoulder blade).

There are other joints around there though that determine how well the shoulder moves, and how stable it is courtesy of the muscles and ligaments that attach. Joints such as the AC (acromioclavicular) joint, the SC (sternoclavicular) joint and the interface between shoulder blade and ribs (scapulothoracic joint) are all imperative to good shoulder function.   Each of these joints need to move well and with good control to ensure optimal shoulder health.


If you're having persistent issues with your shoulder let us have a look at these four joints (and much, much more) to work out the real cause of it…who knows, might even be due to your big toe!
