Shoulder Instability Treatment

The shoulder joints are held together with an intricate configuration of ligaments, tendons, muscles and tissues. When the soft tissues are stretched, weakened or trauma shifts bones out of place, shoulder instability can occur. At Caliber Pain™, we offer innovative shoulder instability treatment to relieve pain and restore arm/shoulder function. If you are suffering from shoulder instability or pain, come see our interventional pain specialists at our clinic in New York City.

The most common precursor to shoulder instability is a shoulder joint dislocation. When the humerus bone is shifted outside of the ball-and-socket joint, it can stretch and damage the tendons, ligaments and other tissues that hold the joint in place. Contact sports, falls, auto/motorcycle accidents and other forms of trauma can cause a shoulder dislocation. In addition, repetitive use can stretch and damage shoulder tissues, resulting in shoulder dislocations and instability.

Symptoms of Shoulder Instability

When the connective tendons, muscles or ligaments are damaged in the shoulder, the joint can become unstable. This can cause repetitive joint dislocations, pain and other symptoms, including:

  • Sensation of an unstable shoulder joint (upper arm feels “loose” or disconnected from the shoulder)
  • Clicking, popping or catching sensation when moving the arm/shoulder
  • Pain, tingling or numbness traveling from the shoulder into the arm
  • Top of the humerus bone disengaging from the socket

Shoulder instability can occur at any age, especially with athletes. However, it is more common as tendons, ligaments and tissue deteriorate, stretch and weaken with age.

Shoulder instability treatment can include a variety of interventional and regenerative medicine options at the Caliber Pain™ medical facility. Our specialists can perform advanced diagnostic testing to determine the source of shoulder joint instability and devise a personalized treatment plan. If you suffer from shoulder instability from injuries or degenerative conditions, contact our clinic to schedule an appointment.
