Shoulder Dislocation

dislocationWhat is Shoulder Dislocation and Shoulder Subluxation?

Shoulder dislocation is when the humerus (arm bone) dislocate out of the socket of scapula (shoulder blade). It can dislocate forward, backwards, downwards or combined. The most common is anterior shoulder dislocation, where humerus comes forward.

Dislocation is usually very painful for the first time, and numbness of the whole arm to hands.

Shoulder subluxation is when the humerus comes out partially from joint, and goes back in, usually on its own, or pushes back. Subluxation is also painful and arm feels weak and numb.

What causes Shoulder Dislocation and Shoulder Subluxation?

- contact sports, like martial arts, rugby, soccer

- fall with outstretched arm

- accident or trauma

- previous shoulder pain, shoulder instability

- torn ligaments or tendon

Diagnosis and Treatment for Shoulder Dislocation

Shoulder dislocation must seek medical treatment immediately to prevent further damage. Your doctor may relocate back humerus into the socket. This is usually followed by Xray to ensure shoulder joint is back in place and no other parts of bone fracture.
