The unique anatomy of the shoulder enables the greatest range of motion of any other joint in the human body, thus the shoulder is considered to inherently be the body’s most mobile joint. However, the shoulder joint is at the same time very susceptible to injuries because of its wide range of motion.
The shoulder (shoulder girdle) comprises the part of the body where the clavicle, scapula and humerus meet. Articulation between the three bones of the shoulder, constitutes two main junctions, the glenohumeral joint, between the humerus and scapula (the major joint of the shoulder), and the acromioclavicular joint, between the lateral end of the clavicle and scapula.
