The shoulder dilemma: So versatile, yet so prone to injury
from By Sheilamary Koch
The shoulder is the body's most mobile joint area. It allows humans to do amazing things like move their arms gracefully in complex patterns, pull their bodies up a steep rock face or power a ball at blazing speeds. It also lets people do ordinary things like shrug, take food out of the freezer and make a bed. What makes the shoulder so wonderful also makes it more prone to injury than any other joint in the body. Due to its mobile nature, it's also quite unstable.
