Case control study to evaluate different factors (e.g muscle strength, psychological factors) that are associated with full recovery and functional status 6 months after surgical repair of shoulder instability.
In this study the investigators will try to find correlations between different factors and functional abilities of patients 6 months post shoulder surgery.
Patients will be examined in a single encounter for muscle strength, fear avoidance beliefs and functional abilities.
Functional abilities will be examined using two validated questionnaires:
1. The Western Ontario Shoulder Instability index (WOSI)
2. Disabilities of the Arm, Shoulder and Hand (DASH)
Fear avoidance will be evaluated using the Fear Avoidance Belief Questionnaire (FABQ)
Muscle strength of the rotator cuff muscles will be measured using Biodex Isokinetic system, model 4.
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Screening
Chronic Instability of Joint
Questionnaires, Isokinetic Strength Measurement

The shoulder is the most mobile joint in the body, and the most exposed to the risk of dislocation notably anterior. Chronic instability of the shoulder is frequent after dislocation, and ...
The ankle joint is often affected by injuries, especially lateral sprains, often leading to chronic instability. Joint mobilization techniques seem to influence the sense of joint position...
Case-control study to evaluate gait parameters during different conditions between patients who suffer from chronic ankle instability and healthy individuals.
This study will look to examine the overall performance of a custom fit knee or ankle brace as a means of providing ankle or knee joint support in subjects that have determined the need fo...
The purpose of this investigation is to determine the effects of chronic ankle instability on cervical spine and knee proprioception as measured using joint position sense to investigate w...
Severe sprain of the thumb metacarpo-phalangeal joint (TMCPJ) is a common injury whose functional outcome is good when repair is performed at the acute stage. The diagnosis is often missed, however, l...
Deficits in ankle and hip strength and lower extremity postural control are associated with chronic ankle instability (CAI). Following strength training, muscle groups demonstrate increased strength. ...
Subtalar instability is associated with up to 80% of patients presenting with chronic ankle instability but is often not considered in the diagnosis or treatment. Operative procedures to repair ankle ...
We describe a technique for the treatment of chronic dorsal instability of the distal radioulnar joint by creating a strong dorsal radioulnar restraint using opposing flaps from the extensor retinacul...
Clinical Scenario: Dorsiflexion range of motion is an important factor in the performance of the Star Excursion Balance Test (SEBT). While patients with chronic ankle instability (CAI) commonly experi...
Chronic progressive degeneration of the stress-bearing portion of a joint, with bizarre hypertrophic changes at the periphery. It is probably a complication of a variety of neurologic disorders, particularly TABES DORSALIS, involving loss of sensation, which leads to relaxation of supporting structures and chronic instability of the joint. (Dorland, 27th ed)
Lack of stability of a joint or joint prosthesis. Factors involved are intra-articular disease and integrity of extra-articular structures such as joint capsule, ligaments, and muscles.
Rapidly destructive shoulder joint and bone disease found mainly in elderly, and predominantly in women. It is characterized by SHOULDER PAIN; JOINT INSTABILITY; and the presence of crystalline CALCIUM PHOSPHATES in the SYNOVIAL FLUID. It is associated with ROTATOR CUFF INJURIES.
Scales, questionnaires, tests, and other methods used to assess pain severity and duration in patients or experimental animals to aid in diagnosis, therapy, and physiological studies.
Genetic disorder of mucopolysaccharide metabolism characterized by skeletal abnormalities, joint instability, development of cervical myelopathy, and excessive urinary keratan sulfate. There are two biochemically distinct forms, each due to a deficiency of a different enzyme.
Arthritis Fibromyalgia Gout Lupus Rheumatic Rheumatology is the medical specialty concerned with the diagnosis and management of disease involving joints, tendons, muscles, ligaments and associated structures (Oxford Medical Diction...
A joint is where two or more bones come together, like the knee, hip, elbow, or shoulder. Joints can be damaged by many types of injuries or diseases, including Arthritis - inflammation of a joint causes pain, stiffness, and swelling with ...
