The most common dislocation observed in the human body is at the glenohumeral joint. This dislocation occurs in 96% of the cases as a result of trauma whereas 4% of them may be atraumatic, often resulting in recurrent dislocation of the shoulder. The incidence of recurrent shoulder dislocation is 90% in young athletes. The factors affecting this rate are: age of the patient at the time of the first dislocation, pathological findings of the bone and soft tissue accompanied by dislocation, treatment protocol, and sportive activities of the patient. Shoulder dislocations are encountered particularly in sports such as handball, volleyball, swimming, and wrestling.
