Shoulder and upper body services
The shoulder joint is considered to be one of the most complex joints in the body.
It is made up of three main bones: the scapula, clavicle and humerus. The shoulder joint is unique in that the ball of the upper arm bone (the humeral head) is two times larger than the socket of the shoulder blade (the glenoid). This creates a very mobile joint, but demands an extensive array of tendons, ligaments and muscles to keep the joint together. These together allow the smooth movement found in the healthy shoulder.
