About Dynamic Stability Factors of Glenohumeral (Shoulder) Joint

Glenohumeral (Shoulder) stability is mainly achieved through dynamic factors. Active contraction of the rotator cuff contributes to joint stabilization by coordinated muscular activity and by secondary tightening of the ligamentous constraints. This effect works in combination with the concavity-compression mechanism, in which muscle contraction causes compression of nearly congruent articular […]
