Orthopaedic Surgeon 's  Response
ehlers danlos syndrome if the cause for shoulder dislocation, can be fixed at surgery with a recontructive approach using carbon filament synthetic ligaments. In this disease, (danlos syndrome), the connective tissues and skin are over lax and friable and so reconstructive repair is a solution, coservative treatment doesnt help in this genetic connective tissue disease as nor mal skin and ligaments wont hold the shoulder head or humerus head in the socket as at both places healing is defective due to fibril disorder
prolotherapy is not the solution
