With more and more people, young and old using iphones, computers, ipads and other gadgets there is one thing for sure… The posture of the general public is getting worse.

The shoulder complex consists of the glenohumeral (GH) joint, the acromioclavicular (AC) joint, the sternoclavicular (SC) joint, and the scapulothoracic joint.

There are a large number of muscles involved in optimal shoulder joint function.

The rotator cuff (RTC) muscles (the supraspinatus, infraspinatus, subscapularis, and teres minor) deltoids, the long head of the biceps, the latisimus dorsi, the pectoralis major, teres major, coracobrachialis, and long head of the triceps. And, finally, the scapular (shoulder blade) muscles, which include the serratus anterior, trapezius, rhomboids, pec minor, and levator scapulae.
