Shoulder Injury

shoulder injury

The shoulder, also called the deltoid or shoulder girdle, is a complex joint connecting the upper arm to the torso. The human body has several types of joints and anatomically the shoulder is a ball and socket joint. The actual name of the shoulder joint is the glenohumeral joint and is where the humerus and scapula meet. It is a very movable joint allowing for 360 degree range of motion, adduction, abduction, flexion and extension. The range of motion of the shoulder also makes it very unstable and prone to injury. These injuries can be in the form of assault, falls, auto accidents, sports injuries, school and university accidents as well as workplace accidents. Also, an injury to the shoulder can also become compounded if, during surgery to repair a shoulder injury, a surgical error occurs or there is negligence on the part of the surgeon.
