Hottest Techniques in Shoulder Surgery

The ball and socket joint of the shoulder normally moves with ease in all directions. However, the joint can become unstable, moving too far or slipping when it shouldn't. When the shoulder is able to shift too far in more than one direction, it is called multidirectional shoulder instability. When this happens, pain, "popping," and dislocation can occur.
