As with all challenges in medicine, the first step in treating shoulder instabilities is to define the problem. For this purpose, classifications have proven useful at the beginning of an individual treatment. In cases of shoulder dislocation, a feasible classification for use in clinical practice was introduced by Gerber and Nyffeler
