Anterior shoulder instability in sport: current management recommendations.
In the young athlete, anterior shoulder dislocations are common injuries that usually result in recurrent instability, and often require surgical treatment. Non-operative treatment remains the initial recommended course for most conditions. Operative treatment has advanced to more anatomical repairs, both open and arthroscopic. The purpose of this paper is to review the evaluation and treatment of anterior shoulder instability, to include acute dislocations, acute subluxations and recurrent instability.
