Our upper limb is part of the appendicular skeleton, the part of the skeleton that attaches the core structural part of the axial skeleton. Like the hip, the shoulder is a ball and socket joint, and as a result has great range of motion. The shoulder however, different to the hip, sacrifices stability for mobility. Due to the range of motion available at the shoulder joint, our shoulder often bears the brunt of many other parts of the body that may not be doing their jobs properly. Rotator cuff tendonitis, tennis or golfers elbow, wrist pain, can often occur due to excessive stress or load being placed upon them when other areas of the body aren’t pulling their weight.
