I have a question about shoulder dislocation. I am 32 year old. The first time I dislocated my shoulder when I was at early 20 (happened when I was playing basketball). I dislocated my shoulder 4 times within 10 years. My orthopaedic sugeron told me that there is less chance to dislocate again as I'm getting older because the muscles will be getting tigthen. Is that right? It doesn't sound right to me. If it is true, should I do the therapy to build up my muscles around my shoulder instead of doing surgery.I read some stories from patients who have surgery. They said they have a lot of pain after surgery and some of them need to have a couple of sugeries more. I do not know I should have a surgery or not. ( My orthopaedic said it is up to me to have sugery or not). I really want to have some opinion from you.
Thanks for your information
