The rehabilitation treatment in glenohumeral instability

and

ABSTRACT

The glenohumeral instability is a frequent pathology especially in athletes, but it may also affect sedentary people, because the glenohumeral joint has a high degree of mobility, but a smaller stability. The main symptoms are represented by pain, slipping of the shoulder and sudden weakness of the arm. We must evaluate also the neurological signs, because secondary shoulder instability can appear in patients with stroke or nerve lesions. The functional limitations include reduced motion, muscle weakness and pain that interferes with activities of daily living. The rehabilitation treatment has important goals as reduction of pain, restoration of full range of motion, correction of muscle strength deficits and return to full activity free of symptoms.

Keywords: gleno-humeral instability, functional consequences, rehabilitation treatment
