Shoulder Dislocation and Reduction/Bankart or SLAP repair

Shoulder Dislocation and Reduction/Bankart or SLAP repair - What it is

​The shoulder is the most flexible joint in your body. This is due to the fact that the glenoid, which is the cup that holds the humeral head, is shallow, thus allowing a wide range of motion. However, this shallow glenoid causes the shoulder joint to be susceptible to injury. The most common type of shoulder dislocation is an anterior dislocation (dislocated to the front), accounting for 95-97% of all shoulder dislocations, followed by posterior dislocation (dislocated towards the back) and inferior dislocation (dislocated downwards).
