The shoulder joint is the joint with the largest range of movement in the human body.

It is also the most flexible joint in the body and has extensive movements.

The shoulder joint contains: the shoulder blade, the collarbone, the humerus (the forearm bone).

As opposed to the other joints of the body. What limits the range of movement of the shoulder joint are muscles, tendons and ligaments rather than bones, which gives it the globular structure.

The disadvantage of this structure is the increased sensitivity of the joint, which is reflected in a variety of sports injuries.

2 Sports injuries are common in this area:

1.Snapping scapula syndrome - characterized by a kind of clicks (as something is not sitting in the right place) when the shoulder is moved up, down, or in a circular motion.

2. Stretch or tear of the shoulder tendons
