Abstract

Posterior glenohumeral instability is an increasingly important clinical finding in athletic patients. Over the last decade, basic and clinical research has improved our understanding of the pathoanatomy and biomechanics of this challenging disorder, as well as our ability to diagnose and appropriately treat it. Although recurrent posterior shoulder instability is not as common as anterior instability, it is prevalent among specific populations, including football and rugby players, and may be overlooked by clinicians who are unaware of the typical physical examination and radiographic findings.
