The shoulder joint is the most flexible and complex joint of the body enabling a wide range of movements to the upper extremities. The spherical head of the long bone of the arm fits loosely into the socket of the glenoid cavity of the shoulder bone to form a ball and socket joint. The stability and strength of the shoulder is provided by the supporting ligaments and tendons of the joint.
