Attleboro Car Accident Victim And Personal Injury Attorneys
The shoulder is comprised of three main bones. The humerus (upper arm bone), Scapula (shoulder blade) and Clavicle (collar bone) all merge to form a ball-and-socket joint. The end of the humerus (also known as the humeral head) meets with the scapula. The scapula in turn joins with the clavicle. These three bones are connected by ligaments.
The rotator cuff is responsible for securing the arm in the shoulder socket. The muscles and tendons that make up the rotator cuff attach the head of the humerus bone, or ball, to the shoulder socket.
Your shoulder contains several bursa. Bursa are fluid filled sacs that act like a cushion by reducing friction between the bones, muscles and tendons located in the shoulder.
The subacromial bursa is the most commonly inflamed bursa in the shoulder. The subacromial bursa aids the motion of the supraspinatus muscle which essential for lifting the hands above your head.
Bursitis of the shoulder is a common source of shoulder pain and is usually related to shoulder impingement syndrome. The supraspinatus muscle, located in the rotator cuff, runs between the top of the humerus/arm bone (humeral head) and the tip of the shoulder blade (acromion).
The subacromial bursa is a fluid filled sac that rests between the top of the humerus arm bone (humeral head) and the tip of the shoulder blade (acromion). The subacromial bursa is a cushion located between the two bones which allows the supraspinatus muscle to safely travel between the bones.
All sorts of trauma related negligence accidents can cause long-lasting bursitis.
