Double jointed shoulders?

I'm not sure if there is such a thing but I have dimples on the backs of my shoulders also I can move my arms in ways most people can't. I experience pain in my shoulders about twice a month. Also they seem weaker then most parts on my body. I lift five times a week and my shoulders are always the first to go out even at my job. Is there such thing as double joint shoulders or is this something else and is there any surgery to fix this.

Re: Double jointed shoulders?

You might try researching hypermobility syndrome. Hypermobility can affect individual joints or joints throughout the body. You might find some helpful information. There is surgery available for tightening, buy my shoulder orthopedic doctor said he doesn't recommend it unless someone is extremely severe.
