Anatomy and Function of Shoulder Joints
  • The shoulder is the most mobile and at the same
    time most unstable joint in the human body.
  • Owing to its complex structure it offers the
    highest range of motion over another joint.
  • And this also makes it highly vulnerable to
    injury in sports or even in daily life.
  • At our joints and sports clinic in Mumbai, we
    often get consulted by patients with shoulder
    strains and injuries.
  • This most often happens due to a lack of right
    information about the joint and the care that
    must be taken for a healthy shoulder.

  • Anatomy of Shoulder Joint 
  • The shoulder is a ball and socket joint that is
    primarily formed by three bones humerus (upper
    arm bone), scapula (shoulder blade) and clavicle
    (collar bone).
  • The head of the humerus bone forms a ball-type
    structure that is lined with cartilage and sits
    in the socket, called the glenoid cavity with
    support from muscles, tendons and ligaments.
  • Thus enabling the shoulder joint to perform
    extension, flexion, abduction, adduction,
    internal rotation, external rotation and
  • This support system of muscles, tendons and
    ligaments are collectively called rotator cuff
    and they ensure free movement of the joint by
    keeping the ball and socket in place, says
