Chronic shoulder dislocation is a severe disabling condition that can significantly decrease an individual’s quality of life, most often resulting after neglected acute dislocations, after surgery, or with the presence of unidirectional or multi-directional shoulder instability. Chronic Inflammatory Demyelinating Polyneuropathy (CIDP) is a neurological disorder characterized by progressive weakness and impaired sensory function in the legs and arms; it is caused by damage to the myelin sheath of the peripheral nerves, and presents with symptoms that include tingling/numbness, weakness of the arms and legs, areflexia, fatigue and abnormal sensation. The purpose of this case report was to describe the physical therapy management and recovery of an individual with chronic shoulder dislocations/instability and CIDP.
