Our shoulders include some of our most commonly used muscles, including the rotator cuff, latissimus dorsi, teres major, trapezius, and the pectoral girdle. They support weight, help us move and push items, as well as assist with actions of the trunk of the body. The area is dense with smaller muscles, ligaments, and muscular attachments. Because of the complexity of this area, it is important for medical professionals and students to have a firm understanding of the shoulder and its muscles. With these muscled shoulder joint models, it becomes easier to have a visual and tactile understanding of the area.
The Weight on Your Shoulders – Muscled Shoulder Joint Anatomical Models
Our shoulder muscles are the connection between our torso and our head and neck, as well as the upper limbs. These muscles act in a variety of ways, from moving to stabilizing. The major joint we typically refer to as our shoulder joint is called the humeroscapular joint because of its location at the junction of the humerus and the scapula. Of all the joints in the body, it has the largest range of motion. However, it also has a high potential for injury, due to its extensive collection of ligaments and connective tissue.
Because of this extremely intricate network of muscles, it is especially important for those in the medical profession to study this joint and the muscles associated with it very closely. Patients, too, need to be aware of the potential for injury present in this area, as should physical therapists, massage therapists, fitness instructors, personal trainers, and anyone intending to educate others about their own muscular structures. For those looking for an exceptionally detailed study option, we suggest the Shoulder Joint Anatomy Model with Rotator Cuff, a high end, detailed model with an exceptional warranty and a full range of motions. This model features removable muscles as well, and displays muscle origins and insertions.
