Our shoulders are one of the most complex joints in our body. It’s where the humorous bone meets the scapula in a ball and socket joint. Also included in the shoulder area is the rotator cuff, your clavicle bone (collarbone), and the bursa sac which has fluid to cushion and protect the tendons in your rotator cuff.
It’s very common during exercise or sporting events to suffer a minor injury. One of the most common is a sprain of the wrist. Many of the sports or activities we partake in can lead to us falling. This can happen from collisions or a loss of balance.
Fingers are one of the smallest limbs of the body and are situated on the end of our hands. They are important for holding, sensing, and feeling something. There are five on each hand. Some do and some don’t consider the thumb as a finger. Opposable thumbs are something that evolution has gifted us. It helps us do things that most animals are not capable of doing.
The shoulder is one of the most flexible joints in the body. It is made up of three bones, the upper arm, the shoulder blade, and the collar bone. It helps in lifting the arm, rotating it, and providing force. It can be rotated in a 360 degree radius vertically as well as horizontally. It is strong as well as flexible and can withstand a good amount of force and strain.
The elbow is the joint that connects the forearm to the upper arm. It provides the basic movements of the arm and is a flexible joint. It is not weak but is not too strong. There are tow joints in the elbow; one is responsible for the up and down movement whereas the other is responsible for the rotation of the arm and the hand.
