Shoulder Instability/Dislocation

Shoulder Instability/Dislocation


What Causes It?

Shoulder stretched backwards and upwards with a collision or a fall. This position is the weakest point in the rotator cuff in the lower front of the shoulder thus causing instability or a dislocation to the shoulder.

Seriously, I walked in limping with a brace on my first day, and left feeling wonderful, and I kept improving after each visit!!! The exercises and attention from the therapists (Kelsey and Jamie) have helped me tremendously, which has enabled me to become more active than I have in a few years. I am truly grateful for their professionalism and attention to my individual need!! I’m HIGHLY recommend them!!

I had postpartum hip issue when I first came into RMPT. I’ve had physical therapy before but never believed in it. This time Jason took over my case and after 12 sessions I am back to 100%. Thank you so much for taking such great care of me. (Fort Collins-Central Clinic)
