The ball and socket joint of the shoulder has the most degrees of motion of any joint in the body. Because of this, it can lend itself as a non weight bearing joint when used in a weight bearing capacity to many pathalogic conditions. These can include; tears of the rotator cuff, frozen shoulder, impingement syndrome, acromioclavicular joint arthritis, labral tears, and instability. The fellowship trained surgeons of Premier Orthopedic Specialists of Tulsa are well versed in both diagnosing and treating these shoulder conditions.
