ABSTRACTMany of the reports and articles made in recent years show that previous glenohumeral instability in athletes has been increasing compared to the rest of the population. This is due to the combination of many factors that involve static and dynamic stabilizers of the joint. However, the main pathology involves not only an anatomical lesion but also the different variables associated with the type of sport activity, the time of evolution and the ability of the physician to arrive at an accurate diagnosis to offer optimal treatment according to the needs of the injury. Each case should be evaluated using the auxiliary diagnostic tools and analyzing the risk factors to avoid the complication of recurrence of episodes of instability for a safe and early return to sports activity.
