Shoulder Injury

The shoulder is where the humerus (upper arm bone), the clavicle (collarbone), and the scapula (shoulder blade) come together.  The head of the humerus bone sits in the glenoid cavity of the shoulder blade.  The glenohumeral joint (shoulder joint) is held together by the labrum, a rim of soft tissue that surrounds the glenoid.
