Non-operative Bankart Lesion Treatment

One option is to allow the patient’s arm to rest, and the accompanying inflammation to subside. This is accomplished through the use of a sling or external rotation brace. Physical therapy and prescribed exercises follow to help regain motion of the extremity. The unfortunate downside of this option is that individuals who dislocate a shoulder once are much more susceptible to future dislocations.
