If you are experiencing intense shoulder pain or feelings of instability, you may require treatment to repair and prevent any damage. You should cease all strenuous activity and make an appointment with your doctor immediately. Treatment may include immobilization,medication,rehabilitation, or surgery.
Treatment for shoulder instability is circumstantial, and
depends on the severity of your injury and condition.
General treatment includes:
- Immobilization of the shoulder
- Medication (oral or injections)
REHABILITATION AND RECOVERY
After surgery, a sling is needed for roughly 4 to 6 weeks, and physical therapy starts after your first post-operative appointment.
