With the increased athletic demand for post-surgical function, a new appreciation for the biomechanics of the shoulder complex has developed, particularly with regard to the general concept of stability and the requisite, balanced muscular demands to maintain the stability. This text synthesizes current information into a practical approach in the evaluation, conservative treatment, and prevention of sports-related injuries, for sports-related practitioners as well as others whose patients are amenable to conservative care. The volume is divided into five sections: functional anatomy and biomechanics, the history and physical examination, radiographic and special imaging, specific disorders, and treatment, rehabilitation, and prevention.
