An Painful & Unstable Shoulder | Physio Penrith

Updated: Jan 13, 2020

Shoulder pain with feelings of an unstable joint will usually mean you have a condition called glenohumeral instability. Symptoms may range from pain at the front and side of the shoulder girdle, vague uncomfortable sensations, apprehension, increased range of motion, and multiple shoulder dislocations.


Therapeutic exercise is often the most supported approach for painful shoulder conditions, particularly rotator cuff injuries and shoulder instability. Getting the correct exercise ensures you don’t aggravate your injury. A good clinician should find the impairments of your shoulder pain, and then direct specific interventions towards them. Impairments might include weakness, loss of range of motion, pain, muscle endurance and coordination of movement.
