Recurrent Dislocation of Shoulder

Recurrent Dislocation of Shoulder

Recurrent shoulder dislocation refers to repeated shoulder dislocations. Patients are considered to have an unstable shoulder or shoulder instability if they have a propensity for recurrent (repeated) dislocation or subluxation (unstable shoulder). This frequently occurs as a result of an unexpected injury, like a fall or accident. A shoulder is susceptible to recurrent occurrences once it has dislocated. Chronic shoulder instability is the term used to describe a loose shoulder that frequently slides out of place.

Most shoulder dislocations are brought on by trauma. Trauma could result from a fall, a car accident, or a sports injury. Numerous ligaments of the shoulder, including the rubbery tissue in the shoulder socket that helps maintain the ball of the joint in place, can be torn by traumatic injuries (the labrum).

Given that recurrent shoulder dislocation has been successfully treated in 97% of cases, a careful examination of the techniques used supports the conclusion that this condition can be cured. But in majority of the treated cases, there has been some degree of shoulder mobility restriction. 2
