Your shoulder has the widest range of motion of all the joints in your body, but it’s also the most unstable. Shoulder problems can run the gamut from fractures, separations, dislocations, bursitis and tendonitis to injured rotator cuffs and labral tears. An orthopedist can prescribe the best course of care for all types of shoulder issues.
