The Shoulder Anatomy

Humerus
Provides attachment to muscles of the upper arm. The humoral head forms the ball of the ball-and-socket shoulder joint.
Scapula
Scapula (shoulder blade) is a flat, triangular bone providing attachment to the muscles of back and neck.
Clavicle
The clavicle is an S-shaped bone that connects the shoulder girdle to the trunk. It maintains the shoulder in a functional position with the axial skeleton and allows varied arm positions.  In addition to its structural function, the clavicle protects major underlying nerves and blood vessels as they pass from the neck to the axilla.
Coracoid Process
The coracoid process is the extension around the shoulder joint at the front – varus force.
Acromion
The acromion is the extension of scapula (shoulder blade) around the shoulder joint at the rear to from a roof. This is also called the acromial.
Glenoid
Glenoid, is the depression at the end of scapula that forms the socket of ball-and-socket shoulder.
Rotator Cuff
Rotator cuff The rotator cuff refers to a group of four tendons that attach four shoulder muscles to the upper arm (humerus) and hold it in the shoulder joint. Many shoulder problems are caused by injuries to the rotator cuff.
