The shoulder is the most mobile joint in the body, and not surprisingly, we use it the most. Lifting, pushing, pulling, throwing, catching, hugging-- more motion than any other joint. If you keep applying the same pressure over and over, the strength and stability of the structure being pressured will wear down. And when it does, it limits your ability to do even simple things you're used to doing. Demirakos explores the anatomy and function of the shoulder, methods of preventing pain and injury, and treatments for healing that anyone can implement for better shoulder health and function.
