Brad Turner is renowned for his dedication to the assessment, treatment and rehabilitation of shoulders.
The shoulder is a complex structure and consists of a number of joints that allow us to move the arm through a large range of motion in all directions.
The main joint of the shoulder is the Glenohumeral Joint (GHJ), which is a ball and socket joint. As the socket is quite shallow to allow a large range of movement, stability assistance is gained from surrounding ligaments, a cartilage ring called the Labrum, the Rotator Cuff muscles and the scapula (shoulder blade) muscles.
This complex structure with great mobility means there can be many causes of shoulder pain. A thorough detailed assessment can identify the problem. Correct diagnosis is very important as it allows commencement of appropriate rehabilitation.
Specific shoulder problems are discussed under Conditions Treated.
