Posterior shoulder instability – initial conservative program

Posterior shoulder instability – initial conservative program

Posterior shoulder instability is a rare occurence and it is mainly caused by excesive force to the shoulder joint where the head of the humerus gets dislocated backwards outside of the gleniod joint surface of the scapula where it is located in the joint socket.

Treatment can be done either conservatively or surgically and very often this injury is not properly or timely diagnosed causing the patients to endure pain and discomfort for extended periods of time. Rotator cuff, upper back and upper arm muscles should be strenghtened and the shoulder restabilized to ensure its full functionality and the possibility of reccurence reduced to a minimum.
