Shoulder dislocation or instability occurs when the ball (head of the humerus) is forced out of the socket (glenoid). This often happens as a result of a sudden injury, that cause the shoulder to become unstable by stretching or tearing the stabilising structures of the shoulder. This tear of the tissue inside the shoulder is called a “Bankart lesion.”
Patients a persistent sensation of the shoulder feeling loose, slipping in and out of the joint, or a feeling that the shoulder wants to “come out of socket”.
Surgery in the form of Shoulder arthroscopy is necessary to stabilise the shoulder. Shoulder arthroscopy involves repair of the torn ligament using anchors and tightening of the loose capsule. Surgical repair provides pain relief, improvement in strength and function, and patient satisfaction, however surgeons expertise is more important in achieving satisfactory results.
