Treating Shoulder dislocations in Plano, Frisco, McKinney and AllenWhat is it?

Shoulder dislocations can be partial (subluxation) or a complete dislocations, which means it’s either partially out of the socket or completely out of the socket. Both cause pain and instability of the shoulder joint and is a very common injury. It occurs commonly after a fall or a sports-related injury.

Symptoms

Pain in the shoulder is the primary symptom and may include weakness or lack of mobility in the arm, bruising, swelling, and even numbness may be felt. Sometimes other structures of the shoulder joint can be injured during a dislocation and may require more medical attention.

Treatment

The most common treatment is known as a process called a closed reduction, where the head of the humerus is placed back into the socket without surgery. In severe dislocations where other structures have been damaged surgery may be required.

If you are experiencing shoulder pain, weakness of the shoulder, stiffness of the shoulder or night time shoulder pain, give us a call 972-250-5700 or make an appointment now.
