OVERVIEW

Multidirectional Instability Signs and Symptoms

There are signs of ligamentous laxity. Subluxations (partially moving out of joint) in the shoulder can cause pain and weakness. On examination by a doctor, a positive “sulcus” sign is found.

Physical therapy is a common treatment option that works well for most patients. Because it is difficult to stabilize the shoulder in all directions, surgery is rarely necessary.
