strange shoulders (2)

…. so do you know where the only bony connection of your arm to your body is?

at the top of your breast bone, you might feel two little bumps…. medically known as the sterno clavicular joints, that is where your collar bone attaches to your body.

You have almost thirty bones in your wrist and hands

they attach to the two bones of the forearm

which attach to the long arm of the upper bone

which rests in a shallow, almost saucer shaped receptacle

that is part of the shoulder blade

which has an almost pencil thin attachment to your collar bone….and no other bone

which attaches to your breast bone

about one inch away from your other arm

ALL OTHER CONNECTIONS OF YOUR ARM TO YOUR BODY ARE DONE WITH SOFT TISSUE

muscles, ligaments, nerves, blood vessels, fat, skin…etc

 

your shoulder girdle, is designed to rest….and move on top of your rib cage[easyazon-image align=”none” asin=”B005EI8R3U” locale=”us” height=”500″ src=”http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/41MVxo13pFL.jpg” width=”500″]
