from superior to inferior
What enhances the stability of the glenohumeral joint?
tendon of long head o biceps - superior
muscels and tendons of the rotator cuff - anterior, posterior and superior
acromion - superior
Where does most of the dislocations in the shoulder occur?
this has little protection
What arteries and nerve can be injured in shoulder dislocations?
