Shoulder Dislocation Mumbai

What is recurrent Shoulder Dislocation/Instability?

A shoulder dislocates when the humerus separates from the scapula at the glenohumeral joint. The shoulder joint has the greatest range of motion in the body and as a result is a susceptible to dislocation and subluxation (incomplete/partial dislocation).

About 50% of major joint dislocations seen in emergency departments are of the shoulder. In recurrent dislocation, the shoulder dislocates repeatedly, during throwing, any outward movement of the arm or sometimes even during sleep.
