Is my shoulder at risk of re-luxating again?

Author of the answer : Dr Jean KanyCatégorie : instabilité

After a first episode of dislocation, joint damage is systematic (although often not very obvious on the exams) and facilitate the occurrence of a new dislocation since the bone parts fit together very little.

It is considered that the recurrence rate exceeds 70% (!) In case of dislocation before the age of 25 years ….
The situation naturally tends to worsen after each new episode of instability until the shoulder is dislocated by stretching or for an innocuous gesture of everyday life.
