I have had shoulder instability for about 5 years (currently 18 year old female). Orthopedic surgeon referred me to PT, which I did for about 6 months. Minimal positive results, so that was stopped. In the last 2 years or so, my scapulothoracic, acromioclavicular, and sternoclavicular, joints have become unstable in addition to the glenohumeral joint (all subluxing multiple times per day/night). My ROM has decreased, and my pain has significantly increased. Pain sometimes wakes me up at night, and limits my activities. Ortho said surgery wasn’t an option because my ligaments are too stretchy and it would “be like sewing taffy.” Are there any other options for me?Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
