Pain from the most mobile joint in your body
Did you know that your shoulder is the most mobile joint in your body?

Your shoulder has a wide range of movement because of the ball-and-socket joint of the main shoulder, while there is a smaller joint where the top of the shoulder blade connects with the collarbone. The small joint contact area also means that your shoulder is fairly unstable and is dependent on your shoulder muscles for normal functioning.

In this issue, we look at shoulder pain, the causes and management of shoulder pain, and how physiotherapy can assist in alleviating this condition.

All the best,

The South African Society of Physiotherapy
