1.1.5 Review of bones, joints, and ligaments of the shoulder


Now that we've taken a look at the bones, joints and ligaments, let's spend about a minute reviewing what we've seen so far.

Here's the proximal humerus, with the head, the greater tubercle and lesser tubercle, the bicipital groove, and the deltoid tuberosity.
