Nerve Injury and Entrapment Neuropathy Around the Shoulder

  • Yasusuke Hirasawa


The movement of the shoulder girdle is controlled by three anatomical joints (scapulohumeral joint, acromio-clavicular joint, and sternoclavicular joint) and two functional joints (subacromial joint and scapulothoracic joint). By cooperation of the muscles that move these joints, the shoulder girdle can be moved smoothly.
