Shoulder joint injuries are common owing to the nature of the joint. Similar to the hip joint, the shoulder joint is a ball-and-socket joint but unlike the hip, it is too shallow to work well without additional support. A cuff of cartilage called the labrum therefore supports the joint and ensures it has the robustness to allow various movements and pressures.
This nevertheless does make the joint susceptible to injury a sthis cuff sometimes tears when a tremendous amount of force is applied to the joint resultsing in a labral tear.
