"The shoulder is four rooms which have no doors to each other." Orthopedist to my my wife this morning.

I could use a exegesis of this. Lots of moving parts in a shoulder.

I wrote it because it surprised me and I didn't really understand it. Perhaps a physical therapist or physician can help us out on this. It was in the context of a corticosteroid shot, which if it did not relieve the pain would be somewhat diagnostic as to area of problem.

Google seems to think the shoulder has four distinct joints.

There also are four different muscles involved in the rotator cuff.

Maybe the ortho meant one of these things.
