Shoulder Instability​

Shoulder Instability​ - What it is

shoulder instability conditions and treatments

The shoulder is an inherently unstable joint and depends on the surrounding muscles, capsule and ligaments for support and stability. These structures may be congenitally loose or damaged as a result of injury.

This can lead to excessive movement of the end of the arm bone in the socket, or if due to a high-energy injury (e.g., fall or tackle during sports), a dislocation of the joint. The latter injury may be associated with damage to the nerves and blood vessels of the upper limb, and require urgent medical attention.
