Shoulder Ligaments

The shoulder joint is protected and surrounded by a soft tissue sleeve called the shoulder capsule. Ligaments, soft tissue structures that connect bone to bone, reinforce the capsule. The capsule and ligaments provide passive stability to the shoulder while still allowing movements in different planes.

The labrum is a fibrocartilagenous structure located along the rim of the glenoid fossa. It provides added depth and stability to the joint.
