The humerus, glenoid, scapula, acromion, clavicle and surrounding soft tissues make up the shoulder. There are three significant articulations: the sternoclavicular joint, the acromioclavicular joint and the glenohumeral joint. The glenohumeral joint is the most commonly dislocated major joint in the body.
Ligaments and surrounding musculature, including the rotator cuff muscles, contribute to shoulder joint stability. The rotator cuff is composed of the four muscles: supraspinatus, infraspinatus, teres minor and subscapularis that interlock to function as one unit. These muscles help with internal and external rotation of the shoulder and importantly depress the humeral head against the glenoid as the arm is elevated. The tendons join together to form one tendon, the rotator cuff tendon. This passes through the subacromial space. The subacromial bursa, which has a large number of pain sensors, fills the space between the acromion and the rotator cuff tendon. [ 1 ]
This was recommended by my ENT consultant, on follow-up for (many years of extreme, very loud) snoring consultation. I have a slightly deviated septum and am extremely prone to allergies. I also have a massive, always inflamed uvula). After months of steroid nose spray (which did help a bit), I am on the month long advised 'break' and was advised by ENT nurse to try this. Major high street chemist and supermarkets only stock the 'weaker' version (without the copper) and they did nothing. However, this version, from BSSAA is 100% wonderful. I can feel my post nasal drip (the main cause of my Darth Vadar snoring/grunting) soothing and snoring is all but halting. It feels 'healing' and it works wonders on my hard, dry uvula (result of many years smoking). I cant THANK YOU BSSAA enough for being the only people reliably stocking this and making a wonderful difference in my life, blighted by snoring.
