Description: Anatomy:
- GHJ has a greater ROM than any other joint;
- Bony Anatomy:
- it's shallow, & is more akin to a grapefruit in saucer than ball in socket.
- lack of bony stability & wide ROM permitted by loose ligamentous & capsular reinforcement account for fact that glenohumeral is most frequently dislocated joint in body.
