Athletes who suffer a shoulder instability injury may return to play more successfully after being treated arthroscopically compared to nonoperative treatment, say researchers presenting their work at the American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine’s (AOSSM) Annual Meeting.

Ten athletes chose nonoperative treatment with only four returning successfully to play without a recurrent shoulder instability event. Of the 29 shoulders treated surgically, 90 percent were able to successfully return to play without shoulder injury recurrence. The sports the athletes’ played included basketball, soccer, lacrosse, rugby, Men’s boxing, baseball, football, martial arts and wrestling.
