The shoulder joint is very movable, but as a result can dislocate easily.
Often when this happens the lining of the shoulder joint is pulled off the bone, meaning dislocations can reoccur. This is called a Bankart tear.
Some patients have no further problems after a shoulder dislocation. But many suffer recurrent instability. Surgery to repair the tear can be beneficial in restoring shoulder stability.
