Everyone knows that the shoulder joint is the loosest of the joints of the human body and no other can be compared with it in mobility. At the same time, its structure is very unstable – basically, this joint is supported by soft tissues that control its movements and at the same time limit them. Due to such high mobility, the shoulder joint is susceptible to various injuries, especially if the load falls on it at the moment when it is in an unfavorable position from the point of view of biomechanics of movements.
One of these injuries is a dislocation of the shoulder joint, that is, the exit of the head of the humerus from the articular cavity of the scapula. With a dislocation, the soft tissues of the shoulder supporting the joint Continue reading

Inflammatory processes (both independent diseases and symptoms) in the modern world are more and more common.

Inflammation is a natural reaction of an organism to a threat, an attempt to protect itself and recover, to get rid of certain irritants of microorganisms or pathogens. However, in the long run, inflammation can lead to tissue damage, which, in turn, leads to the development of special molecules that re-launch inflammatory processes. Such a vicious circle can ultimately cause a disruption in the functioning of a variety of tissues and organs, especially Continue reading
