Did you know that the shoulder is the most flexible joint in the body? Classified as a ball-and-socket joint, shoulder stability relies mainly on soft-tissue restraints, which are made up of the rotator cuff, the glenoid labrum, and the capsule. Fluid-filled sacs called bursa surround the shoulder joint, providing cushioning that keeps the tendons from coming into direct contact with the bone. Each part affects the whole, so it is important for every aspect of the shoulder to operate smoothly to ensure full range of motion.
