Shoulder injury and PRP therapy

13 July 2018

The shoulder is the most flexible joint in the body, enabling a wide range of movements including forward flexion, abduction, adduction, external rotation, internal rotation, and 360-degree circumduction. This ability to be multi-directional means the shoulder joint is considered the most insecure joint of the body. It is only as a result of the support of ligaments, muscles and tendons that the required stability of function is achieved. It is therefore not a surprise that it can be easily and repeatedly injured.
