People with sc instability need to be evaluated by shoulder specialist. The best pt is to learn to avoid certain activities and positions. Also generalized shoulder and periscapular strengthening. You need a ct or MRI to evaluate extent of subluxation and determine if ligamentous reconstruction is warranted. Most doctors that work on shoulders don't even see these patients.
