How do you stabilize an unstable shoulder?
To correct severe instability, open surgery is often necessary. An incision is made over the shoulder and the muscles are moved to gain access to the joint capsule, ligaments and labrum (Figure 6).
What are the 2 types of shoulder stabilization?
The joint capsule contains the glenohumeral ligaments. These ligaments, along with the rotator cuff muscles and the glenoid labrum, can be further divided into static and dynamic stabilizers of the glenohumeral joint. FIGURE 1.
