FREE PHYSIO - Shoulder Instability Trial

Shoulder Instability Trial




 In conjunction with La Trobe University, Lifecare’s shoulder team is investigating the effect of two different rehabilitation programs on patients with multidirectional instability (MDI) of the shoulder.


Participants are randomised to receive one of two treatment programs and receive FREE PHYSIOTHERAPY once a week for 12 weeks with a shoulder physiotherapist.


To be eligible for the trial patients must:


·       Aged 12- 35 years

·       Have no significant history of trauma (no full shoulder dislocation with relocation)

·       No previous history of surgery to the shoulder


If you are a patient who thinks they are eligible, or you are a medical practitioner who would like to refer a patient into the trial please contact:
