Moving freely in many directions, the shoulder is more prone to dislocation than any other joint. Dislocation occurs most commonly when the humerus slips forward, although it may also slip back or downward. This can be very painful, and potentially lead to tears and ongoing instability. Soft tissue treatment and strength building stabilization often alleviate deteriorated shoulders. In cases of severe trauma or chronic instability, when conservative treatments have been exhausted, minimally invasive arthroscopic surgery is utilized to repair damage and restore functionality.
