Shoulder joint multi-directional instability

What is shoulder joint multi-directional instability?

Multidirectional instability refers to the instability of the shoulder in various directions, In the past, it was thought to be irrelevant to the trauma, but recently it has been known to be caused by minor repetitive trauma or severe trauma.

Multidirectional instability is diagnosed by patient history, physical examination, radiography, MRA and arthroscopic findings.
