Shoulder joint is one of the most mobile joints of the body. However, this amount of mobility comes at the cost of stability. Less stability makes it a target of various musculoskeletal conditions like instability, dislocation/ subluxation, tendinitis, impingement, arthritis, adhesive capsulitis, strain, weakness of rotator cuff muscles etc. Also, it’s a very large joint and falling on an outstretched hand pertains it to sustain major injuries and fractures instantly. Even amongst the sports people, shoulder injuries are common due to overuse, wrong technique of hand maneuvers or due to on-field injuries. Not only amongst sports players, but musculoskeletal conditions like frozen shoulder, rotator cuff injuries/ weakness make it difficult to perform the activities of daily living like dressing up, pulling/pushing a door, sleeping on the affected shoulder, overhead motions; ultimately disturbing the normal routines of sedentary people. Therefore, role of a physiotherapist essentially comes into play in treating this highly mobile joint.
