The shoulder is the most mobile large joint in the body. Tennis, Golf, Baseball, Football, Swimming and CrossFit are sports that often see some ailment of the shoulder. We use this joint for everything, so it is no surprise to see injuries here. The shoulder is a complicated joint, and rarely is fixed with simple stretching or even strengthening. Like any part of the body, if there is an imbalance in the joint, one side typically is tight, while the other is weak, this is especially true in the shoulder.
Understanding the complexity is of the shoulder is difficult even for a trained physician. You have to deal with shoulder blade implications, collarbone problems, rotator cuff influence, as well as the larger muscles, postural issues and finally, overuse when assessing the shoulder.
