Causes & Symptoms of Shoulder Dislocations
Our Midtown chiropractors frequently meet patients who have experienced a painful shoulder dislocation during sports, an auto accident, or a personal injury such as a fall. A dislocation occurs when the round humeral head (the uppermost end of your upper arm bone) either partially or completely moves out of its normal position inside the shoulder socket (a concave surface on your shoulder blade called the glenoid fossa). A dislocation can occur in any direction, and generally is the result of some abnormal force on or movement of the shoulder. Symptoms are generally immediate and include:
- Pain and and tenderness
- Swelling and bruising
- Numbness and tingling in the arm and hand
- Weakness and decreased ability to move the arm
Even after a shoulder has "popped" back into place (either spontaneously or through a closed reduction technique by a professional), pain, instability, and weakness can persist thanks to an injury to the joint capsule, muscles, tendons, and/or ligaments. These tissues normally stabilize the highly mobile shoulder joint, but can become weak and unstable following a shoulder dislocation (especially if the person is required to undergo a period of immobilization following the incident).
Once a dislocation has occurred, a person is more at risk for a dislocation to occur again in the future. Fortunately, this risk for re-injury can be mitigated through appropriate therapeutic and preventive strategies offered by our integrated staff.
