    Introduction Glenouhumeral Joint The glenohumeral (GH) joint, which is also known as shoulder joint, is a multiaxial ball-and-socket synovial joint. This joint is responsible for connecting the upper extremity of the trunk. The glenohumeral joint is one of the four joints that comprise the shoulder complex. The joint is considered to be the most mobile and least stable joint. The articular surfaces of the glenohumeral joint are the head of humerus and glenoid fossa of scapula. The humeral head can be in articulation with the glenoid fossa in any position of joint because the head of the humerus is larger than the glenoid fossa. This relationship is best compared with a golf ball siting on a tee, with stability conferred by static and dynamic…

    The head of the humerus forms the ball for the ball- and- socket shoulder joint, with the glenoid cavity of the Scapula as the socket. The roundness of the head allows the humerus to move in a complete circle and rotate around its axis of the shoulder joint. 1:35- 2:00 Demonstrate the Anatomical neck, Greater tubercle and lesser tubercle and the intertubercular sulcus You can see that from the head, the Humerus begins to narrow to form the anatomical neck. Just below the anatomical neck, two…

    Glenohumeral joint dislocations are injuries involved with damaged ligaments, fractures and neurovascular damage (Cunningham, 2012). The anterior dislocation, also known as the “subcoracoid dislocation” is when the humeral head (shoulder head) lies anterior and medial to the glenoid cavity (the fossa the humeral head articulates with). With this movement of the bone it causes pain, instability and restricts the joint. Static and dynamic forces prevent this joint from relocating (Cunningham,…

    are over half of the seven scapulohumeral muscles. The four muscles are the supraspinatus muscle, the infraspinatus muscle, teres minor muscle, and the subscapularis muscle. The supraspinatus muscle fans out in a horizontal band to insert on the superior and middle facets of the greater tubercle. The greater tubercle projects as the most lateral structure of the humeral head. Medial to this, in turn, is the lesser tuberosity of the humeral head. The subscapularis muscle origin is divided from…
