Health is wealth, so they say – and many of us have no doubt heard that true slogan many times in our lifetime, particularly when things aren’t going all that well physically in our lives. Because when your health is gone, basically, everything for you is gone. Right? You probably will lose the capacity to work and when you can no longer work, your life could possibly start a downward spiral, one of misery and poverty; which can take years and years to recover; if ever.

At this joint the large medial end of the clavicle is united to the superior angle of the manubrium sterni, the first costal cartilage also assisting to support the clavicle. It is the only joint between the upper extremity and the trunk, and takes part in all the movements of the upper limb. Looking at the bones, one would say that they were in no way adapted to articulate with one another, and yet they assist in constructing a joint of security, strength, and importance. The bones are nowhere in actual contact, being completely separated by an articular disc. The interval between the joints of the two sides varies from one inch to an inch and a half (2.5-4 cm.).
