Healthy Shoulder Joint

Let’s take a look at a healthy shoulder joint. It consists of three separate bones: the clavicle (collar bone), the scapula (shoulder blade) and the humerus (upper arm bone). The shoulder bones held in place by muscles, tendons, and ligaments. Tendons are tissue cords that hold the shoulder muscles to bones and help the shoulder move. Ligaments stabilize the shoulder joint by holding the three shoulder bones together.

A full array of treatment options for shoulder, arm and elbow pain and numbness.

I see numerous cases of shoulder and elbow injuries. Most of us have experienced at one time or another injury or pain of the arm though having had shoulder pain myself, it is very unpleasant. Shoulder and elbow pain can occur for many reasons.

Disease such as arthritis, injury, or repetitive motion, are some of the reasons I see patients with shoulder and elbow distress such as pain, stiffness, and movement restriction.
