Anatomy

The elbow is a hinge joint made up of the humerus, ulna and radius. The primary stability of the elbow is provided by the ulnar collateral ligament, on the medial (inner) side of the elbow.

The shoulder is a complex structure made of three separate joints. They work together to give the shoulder a range of motion. The humerus is the large bone of the upper arm. The scapula is a flat, triangular bone at the rear of the shoulder and finally, the clavicle, often called the collarbone.
