Anatomy of My Shoulder

Picture your shoulder as a complex system involving three key components: the upper arm bone (humerus), a flat shoulder blade (scapula), and the collarbone (clavicle). Together, they form the shoulder joint, a bit like a ball fitting into a socket. This joint allows for a wide range of arm movements, similar to how a joystick works. Additionally, muscles and tendons act as the powerhouse, enabling your shoulder to carry out various tasks by pulling and coordinating movements, similar to the intricate workings of a machine.

“I was seen by Dr. Tyler a couple of weeks ago and he went above and beyond to help me. I was struggling with shoulder pain for months and it became debilitating. Dr. Tyler took the time to listen to me, educate me, and provide exercise treatments. After seeking help at Revolution Rehab, my shoulder pain completely went away and was back to normal function. I recommend anyone needing help for aches and pains to see Dr. Tyler. I wish I wouldn’t have waited months to get help. Thank you Revolution Rehab!!”
