SHOULDER AND KNEE

The shoulder is one of the most complex parts of the human body in design and functionality and is considered the joint with the greatest range of motion. It allows us to perform simple actions like lifting objects or scratching our back, as well as large, complex movements like swimming, climbing, and throwing objects long distances. Many different structures play a role in the process of granting us such mobility; these same structures open the door to a wide range of possible injuries. The knee is a joint that plays a primary role in activities involving the lower extremities, essential in climbing or descending stairs, running, and squatting among others.

KNEE

This is the joint with the highest rate of injury among athletes, however, due to degenerative tendencies, it also affects a large swath of the population causing pain and limited mobility.

SHOULDER

The shoulder is formed by the humerus, shoulder blade, and clavicle, however this is only the bony frame. The joint’s functional mobility is due to a complex musculotendinous unit, which is why the shoulder suffers such a high rate of sports-related injuries or degenerative injuries caused by daily activities. The main culprit behind shoulder injuries is mechanical. That is to say that what went wrong, be it in the part of the shoulder that creates stability or mobility, is due to trauma, a fall, or from overuse.
