The shoulder is one of the most complex joints in the body. It is called a ball-and-socket joint because it is formed when the “ball” end of the humerus (upper arm bone) fits into the “socket” of the scapula (shoulder blade). This arrangement allows the shoulder to have a wide range of motion, but also makes it vulnerable to injury.
The rotator cuff is a group of muscles and tendons that surround the shoulder and give it support. A rim of cartilage on the “socket”, called the labrum, also provides support by forming a cup for the ball-like head of the humerus to fit into.
The conditions that we treat involving the shoulder include, but are not limited to:
Adhesive Capsulitis (Frozen Shoulder)
Bicep Tendon Injury
Shoulder Labral Tear
Rotator Cuff Injury
