Recognising the Signs of Shoulder Instability

Shoulder instability can manifest through various symptoms, the most common being discomforting pain in the affected area. Individuals might also experience frequent dislocations of the shoulder or a feeling of the shoulder "giving way." It's not uncommon for patients to report a continuous sensation of the shoulder feeling loose or as if it's slipping in and out of the joint.

Treatment of Shoulder Instability

Some patients may not require surgical intervention for shoulder dislocation and instability. Instead, they can achieve recovery through a combination of icing, medication, rest, restricted movement, and physical therapy. However, in cases where there is damage or looseness of the tissues caused by recurrent dislocation, surgery becomes necessary to minimize the risk of future shoulder instability and dislocation.
