What is Shoulder Instability?

Shoulder instability is a problem that occurs when the structures that surround the glenohumeral joint do not work to maintain the ball within its socket. If the joint is too loose, it may slide partially out of place. If the joint comes completely out of place, this is called a shoulder dislocation. Patients with shoulder instability often complain of an uncomfortable sensation that their shoulder may be about to slide out of place.

Symptoms of Shoulder Instability

  • Repeated shoulder dislocations
  • Repeated instances of the shoulder giving out



Causes of Shoulder Instability

  • Shoulder Dislocation
