The shoulder is the most flexible joint in the body. It’s so flexible that, unlike other joints, it has very few ligaments holding it together. Instead, it has a group of muscles, the Rotator Cuff, that act like adjustable ligaments to stabilize the joint in any position. The Rotator Cuff stabilizes the joint whether you are reaching overhead or doing pushups. Here we discuss the importance of a healthy shoulder, what helps stabilize the shoulder and how to get help if you are having issues with your shoulder(s).
People who have suffered joint pain for many years are usually very happy to have the diseased joint replaced with an artificial one.
