The shoulder joint provides mobility to allow us to carry out everyday tasks such as reaching our arms out, placing our hand behind our head or back, and playing sports such as tennis, basketball and badminton.

When the shoulder joint becomes painful to move, it inevitably becomes stiff and function is impaired.
