The shoulder joint complex represents a masterpiece of human engineering. It is composed by the higher numbers of joint and it is the most flexible of all segments of the human body.
The bones of the shoulder complex are the humerus, scapula, and clavicle. The shoulder complex has three articulations: glenohumeral, acromioclavicular, and sternoclavicular.

The articular structures of the shoulder complex are designed primarily for mobility, allowing us to move and position the hand through a wide range of space.
As a result, muscle forces serve as a primary mechanism for securing the shoulder girdle to the thorax and providing a stable base of support for upper extremity movements.

The main movement of the upper limb which can be made by the shoulder are:

•    The flexion, that is the front elevation of the upper limb;
•    The extension, that is the back elevation of the upper limb
•    The abduction, that is the lateral elevation of the upper limb;
•    The internal rotation;
•    The external rotation.

The shoulder joint is particularly susceptible to injuries because of its great mobility and inherent instability. The heavy reliance on soft tissue structures and balanced muscular control for stabilization through a large ROM places considerable demands on these structures, resulting in both acute and chronic injuries.

For all those reasons is very important to take care of this joint. Check regularly the stability and the physiological range of motion. The absence of symptoms does not exclude joint problems that may arise in the future.

Being a joint used for the daily activities it is important to ensure its correct functions.
