The shoulder joint constitutes a sophisticated compromise between stability and movement: trauma such as dislocation and the surgery that follows to restore anatomical integrity, may cause a change in this balance, resulting in myofascial retraction, neuromotorial inhibition, and a deviation in motorial programming with the appearance of compensation. It is the purpose of this study to report the results obtained with a specific rehabilitation program in 18 patients submitted to Neer capsuloplasty to treat anterior shoulder instability. An objective and subjective study with pre-established stages, and a 12-month follow-up was done, to evaluate the results obtained based on the Rowe scale.
