Shoulders

Ok so shoulders, are complicated (the largest and most complex in fact in the body), I am not going to be able to explain as easily as the knee about the ins and outs of the knee. So to keep this as brief as I can…..


The shoulder is made up of the humerus (upper arm bone), fits into the scapula (shoulder blade), like a ball & socket. The shoulder has other important structures, the rotator cuff (muscles & tendons that surround the shoulder), the bursa (small sac of fluid that cushions & protects) and labrum (a cuff of cartilage which forms a cup for the head of the humerus to fit into).


The shoulder has a wide range of motion, which is brilliant however makes it vulnerable to injury. Considering this there is a wide range of conditions that can occur to your shoulder, to make it painful or sore. If something is hurting stop, assess what you are doing (are you doing the movement incorrectly), or is the pain something else - if it something else seek advice, help or support.
