If, as somebody once said, the knee was designed when God' s attention was distracted, the shoulder was created when He was at the height of his powers.

Consider what the shoulder does, and how many athletes – swimmers, tennis players, bowlers, baseball pitchers, javelin throwers – take it for granted.

The shoulder can assume no less than 1,600 different positions and, as Dr Simon Kemp points out early in this special report, there is more movement at the shoulder joint than at any other joint in the body. It is a truly remarkable “piece of kit”.

But it goes wrong! Largely, this is because of the stress and punishment that the shoulder is subjected to in the modern sports world. That's where this special report comes in.

Prepared by the combined experts of Peak Performance and Sports Injury Bulletin, this report looks at every aspect of shoulder care and injury prevention, how and why it goes wrong and what you can do about it.
