The shoulder rotates more than any other joint in the body, due to its unique design, which resembles a ball balancing on a shallow cup, supported by muscles, ligaments, and tendons. The downside to this structure is that it is very fragile, making it one of the most frequently injured body parts for athletes or those with active careers. Injuries or issues in the shoulder often affect the performance of the arm as a whole.
