Physio Edge podcast

Posterior shoulder instability can occur after a fall onto an outstretched arm, or diving and hitting the ground with your arm (like diving to score a try in rugby), injuring the posterior labrum and/or the glenohumeral joint. Unlike anterior shoulder instability, patients with posterior shoulder instability may not have a feeling of instability, but may just experience pain, fatigue and weakness.

How can you identify posterior shoulder instability in your shoulder pain patients? What does your rehab for posterior shoulder instability need to include?

Find out in this podcast with Jo Gibson (Upper Limb Rehabilitation Specialist Physio).

The handout for this podcast consists of a transcript, a summary and articles referenced in the podcast.
