This can be a tear of the labram or bony defects in the glenoid or humeral head. A shoulder specialist can determine the cause of your dislocations. ...Read more
Laxity: Ligaments hold bones together. Some people have ligaments that are looser than other people, allowing for more movement in joints. This is when people are described as "loose-jointed" or "double-jointed". Other times, an injury may have damaged the shoulder joint, and the structures that hold it in place may need to be repaired.
