Although shoulder is quite an unstable joint but if its gets dislocated regularly, severely, or feels like loose,” it’s repair should be done to prevent damage of the surrounding tissues and nerves.
Characteristics of Recurrent Shoulder Dislocation:
Cause: Age related wear & tear OR trauma OR motor vehicle accident OR due to inherent looseness in the joint OR repetitive activities such as throwing or swimming.
Symptoms: Sensation of looseness or instability in the joint along with pain, swelling, numbness and weakness.
Treatment: Shoulder arthroscopic surgery is performed to tighten the stretched ligaments or to reattach the torn ligaments or to tighten the shoulder capsule itself. This will create stability and prevent further dislocation.
