The Shoulder Quiz

A dislocation and a torn rotator cuff are just two things that can go wrong with the shoulder. Can you think of others? Find out how much you know about shoulders by taking this quiz, based on information from the National Institute of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases and the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons.

1. The collarbone is part of the shoulder joint.
2. The shoulder is the second most movable joint in the body, after the knee.
3. A pain in and around the shoulder may indicate an injury—or a disease elsewhere in the body.
4. A shoulder can be dislocated more easily than any other major joint.
5. Swelling and numbness are two symptoms of a dislocated shoulder.
6. A dislocated shoulder must be kept immobile for 3 months.
7. Jobs that require heavy lifting can lead to rotator cuff tears.
8. A "frozen shoulder" rarely appears in someone younger than 40.
