Shoulder pain and subluxation after surgery 2 years ago.

Patient: Hello. I experienced a posterior shoulder dislocation during a seizure about 2 and a half years ago. After the seizure I found out that I had a torn labrum, so then I underwent arthroscopic shoulder surgery. I did 3 months of PT, but now 2 and a half years later and now I’ve experienced 4 or 5 shoulder subluxation.

 

 

Symptoms: Shoulder seems to ‘pop’ of place frequently along with numbness and pain.
