Author information

Abstract

The glenohumeral joint is designed for mobility and is normally lax. It is stabilized in its midrange by its limited joint volume and concavity-compression. It is stabilized at the extremes of motion by its ligaments. An enhanced understanding of these stabilizing mechanisms helps us in the diagnosis and management of glenohumeral instability.
