Shoulder Instability

Shoulder instability occurs when the articulating surface of the humeral head is forced out of the shoulder socket. This can happen as a result of overuse or a sudden injury. The result of subluxing or dislocating causes acute or chronic tears of the glenoid labrum and can cause the ligaments making up the shoulder capsule to become loose and unstable. Surgical intervention includes capsular plication and or ligament repair of the surrounding structures ultimately tightening the stabilizing the shoulder joint.
