Patients who experience repeated shoulder dislocations, either partial or complete, may suffer from chronic shoulder instability. In this condition, the shoulder joint is weakened and easily slips out of place. At Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians, we are qualified to restore stability to your shoulder and help you prevent further dislocations. If you suffer from pain or popping when performing certain shoulder movements or if you experience repeated instances where your shoulder dislocates or gives out, give us a call to explore your options for shoulder instability repair. Athletes who participate in repeated overhead sports such as baseball, swimming, volleyball or weightlifting are at a higher risk for shoulder instability and other shoulder injuries.

Treatment for Shoulder Instability and Weakness

Whether you have instability from a fall or from a sports-related strain, we can provide an effective and customized treatment plan to reverse your condition. Shoulder instability repair may include conservative treatment measures such as closed reduction, medications, steroid injections and rest. However, if your shoulder instability does not respond to these treatment methods, surgical intervention may be necessary to restore the full range of motion and strength to your joint. In many cases, arthroscopic surgery can successfully repair torn or stretched ligaments so they are able to properly hold the shoulder joint in place. This type of stabilization surgery allows for smaller incisions, less scarring and faster recovery time.

As with any of our shoulder injury treatments, our sports medicine specialists believe in educating patients about the treatment options presented to them and helping them make informed decisions regarding their shoulder care. At Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians, we want you to enjoy an active lifestyle for as long as you want – even after a shoulder injury. Contact us today to learn if shoulder instability treatment is right for you.

Surgery was a success my left knee is fully functional again. Langer and his staff was very helpful through this entire process they assigned me a top physical therapist Cara which was great at helping me to improve now just up to me to continue to condition myself back to the way I was physically before the injury and hopefully I never have to endure any future injuries that lead to surgery. Overall a great help and experience after surgery was completed. Thank You to Langer and his staff.

Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians are excellent in the work they do. They take their time with each patient and make sure you walk away with an understanding of exactly what you're going through. I have been a patient here twice and I could 100% assure you that you will have a great experience. Further the physicians are very knowledgeable and experienced at what they do. Moreover, the entire staff are welcoming and accommodating to your needs. I work in Entertainment, and have appeared several times on television (Google "David Wells and Ricky Johnson). I recommend and trust Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians.
