Your shoulder joint is composed of three bones: the clavicle (collarbone), the scapula (shoulder blade), and the humerus (upper arm bone). Your shoulders are the most movable joints in your body, and virtually every human activity uses the shoulder joints.
They can also be unstable because the ball of the upper arm is larger than the shoulder socket that holds it. To remain in a stable or normal position, the shoulder must be anchored by muscles, tendons and ligaments. Because the shoulder can be unstable, it is the site of many common problems. They include sprains, strains, dislocations, separations, dislocated shoulder (instability), tendinitis, bursitis, torn rotator cuffs, torn tendons, muscles, and ligaments, pinched nerves, frozen shoulder, fractures and arthritis.
Some people will have a tendency to ignore the pain and "play through" a shoulder injury and wait for the muscles, ligaments, and tendons to repair, which only aggravates the condition. People also may underestimate the extent of their injury because steady pain, weakness in the arm, or limitation of joint motion will become almost second nature to them.
