Your shoulder is made up of three bones: your upper arm bone (humerus), your shoulder blade (scapula), and your collarbone (clavicle). The head, or ball, of your upper arm bone fits into a shallow socket in your shoulder blade. This socket is called the glenoid. Strong connective tissue, called the shoulder capsule, is the ligament system of the shoulder and keeps the head of the upper arm bone centered in the glenoid socket. Your shoulder also relies on strong tendons and muscles to keep your shoulder stable. The shoulder joint in an active person can bear many repetitive tasks. In some cases the frequent use can cause injury. Whether minor or serious, your surgeon at Beach Orthopaedic Specialty Institute can get you back in action and regain an active lifestyle again. Many of our patients find their surgeries to be life changing. The specialists at BOSI are experts at diagnosing and treating shoulder injuries.
