Shoulder instability describes a condition of increased joint mobility that affects the passive restraints of the shoulder joint (labrum, capsule and ligaments) and can be broadly classified as traumatic or atraumatic.
Both forms of instability can cause pain and severely impair function, but can also respond to a conservative care program focused on reducing pain, avoiding stress to the capsule, labrum and/or shoulder ligaments and improving neuromuscular control. Although both classifications of instability can improve with rehab, improvements do vary by type. Research has demonstrated that approximately 15% of traumatic cases showed good to excellent results with exercise while 83% of atraumatic cases showed improvement.
If you suffer from instability of the shoulder, make sure to give conservative care, specifically, neuromuscular control and muscle strength & endurance exercises a try before rushing into surgical reconstruction.
If you are suffering from shoulder pain and/or instability, this program will help restore function and reduce pain.
