The shoulder has one of the largest and most complex joints in the whole body. It is made up of three main bones: the collarbone (clavicle), shoulder blade (scapula), and humerus (long bone of the upper limb). Together, these three prominent bones make up four pairs of joints, namely:
These four joints help the shoulders become flexible and have a greater range of motion than any other body part. However, this is also what makes the shoulders prone to major injuries, such as dislocations and instability.
In fact, studies reveal that shoulder dislocation represents 50% of all major joint dislocations sent to the hospital and ER. Once a shoulder is repeatedly injured and dislocated, that only increases its chances of sustaining instability.
Below is an in-depth discussion on shoulder instability一what it is, its causes, symptoms, and how to treat this condition.
