Shoulder Pain Treatment
Often described as the most complex joint in the human body, the shoulder is actually made up of four joints: The gleno-humeral joint, acromio-clavicular joint, scapula-thoracic joint and sterno-clavicular joint. The joints of the shoulder are held together by strong ligaments and many different muscles, most notably, the Rotator Cuff. The Rotator Cuff is a group of four muscles which form a claw-like structure on the top of the arm, holding it in the socket of the shoulder and providing stability when you move your arm. Many shoulder issues are caused, or certainly exacerbated, by dysfunction of the rotator cuff muscles. To complicate matters, an intricate network of nerves and blood vessels supplying the arm and hand runs through the shoulder joint which must be carefully considered during a shoulder assessment.
