Added information based on my own experience, and images of my own hand. I hate learning this way! Russell 22:01, 11 September 2005 (UTC)

Owch, that looks painful...

Dislocation[edit]

i have had a dislocation in my shoulder. I heard that if a joint is dislocated, after it heals it can easily be dislocated again. Is that true?

Yes, there will be a tendency towards easier dislocation, therefore surgical reparation of the damaged joint capsule and ligaments may be necessary. Rehabilitation from a Physical Therapist is the usual treatment. -- Fyslee 10:16, 31 October 2006 (UTC)
I had a dislocated shoulder 40 years ago. It repeated a few times in the few next years and then stopped, either because it healed or because I learned not to stress it. I never saw a doctor about it. Do they heal? 50.180.19.238 (talk) — Preceding undated comment added 23:53, 31 December 2014 (UTC)


First off, i would like to thank you for your quick and informative answer, but i would like to add something : taking into consideration that it was a partial dislocation, and that I am still sixteen years old, is a Physical Therapist and surgical reparation still necessary?

I would recommend seeing a Physical Therapist. If they give you therapy, they may be able to strengthen the muscles around the joint to prevent any new problems. Also, they can see about range of motion and any other problems. That's what I did, although the damage was done by multiple dislocations. MrPsychic 03:31, 22 June 2007 (UTC)

surgery or not[edit]

i have had a dislocation in the same shoulder twice. I want to know about the side effects of a surgery and is it reccommended or is strengthening the organs around the dislocated shoulder suffiecent? —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 213.42.21.83 (talk) 20:20, 25 April 2007 (UTC).

Dislocated Shoulder This article may be of some help, it does have several good links. If you have any other questions, ask the surgeon about it, or your physical therapist.

how do you identify a dislocation and what do you do after you know its a dislocation —Preceding unsigned comment added by Barny Fife (talkcontribs) 20:03, 6 October 2009 (UTC)
