Our expert says:
you suffer from what is referred to as: "post-traumatic recurrent instability " of the shoulder. You obviously sustained a shoulder dislocation at the first injury and now it dislocates continually. With the repeated dislocations you are causing more and more damage to the shoulder- usually the edge of the socket wears away and the dislocations will become easier and easier. You are young and should have it seen to:it will need an operation to stabilise it - if you see a shoulder expert he will most likely determine that you have a significant bone loss from the socket adn would suggest an operation to correct it.
Do you have a hospital close to you - where do you live? Look at our website www.shoulderinstitute.co.za and then at "instability" for more information on this topic - you will also see the e-mail address where you can contact us direct for further information
