There are many causes of shoulder instability

Commonly linked to overuse injuries or trauma, the underlying root cause of shoulder instability can range from musculoskeletal imbalances, lack of muscle strength and endurance, poor posture or alignment, and even laxity in the ligaments that provide stability and support. In order to address shoulder instability, chiropractic adjustments along with massage therapy by a physiotherapist may be recommended. These alignments along with manual manipulation and targeted soft tissue treatments can help release protective scar tissue buildup in the shoulders as well as restore normal range of motion and muscle balance so necessary for healthy stability.

What is shoulder instability?

Shoulder instability is a condition that affects the shoulder joint, causing it to move too far out of place or be too loose. It is a common injury amongst athletes who partake in sports that involve repetitive overhead movement, such as baseball and swimming. It can also result from trauma, like a dislocated shoulder or direct blow to the head and neck area. In any case, shoulder instability can lead to frequent episodes of pain and limited joint function due to its instability.

What are the symptoms of shoulder instability?

Shoulder instability occurs when the ball of the upper arm no longer remains in stable contact with the shoulder joint socket. Symptoms typically include episodes of popping or slipping out of the socket, recurring pain, discomfort and stiffness in the joint, as well as difficulty having full range of motion. Shoulder instability can be precipitated by both congenital issues and trauma, such as dislocations caused by a fall or a sports-related accident.

What are the treatments for shoulder instability?

Shoulder instability can be managed with a range of treatments from chiropractic, massage therapy, and physical therapist-directed exercises. Chiropractic manipulation is used to realign the bones in the shoulder joint to reduce pain, improve range of motion, and support healing. Massage therapy is also employed to relax tissues and muscles that might be causing pain or limiting the joint’s ability to move. Working with a physical therapist can bring about lasting results: through targeted exercises and coaching, patients can develop strength and stability in their shoulder joint to limit further risk of instability. Overall, these various treatments can be successfully combined for effective management of shoulder instability and improved quality of life.
