Stuck Shoulders: A shoulder dystocia is when the shoulders get stuck after the head delivers.Most of the time it is mild and resolves quickly. Rarely it can be very dangerous for the baby, causing nerve damage, brain damage and rarely fetal death. It is hard to prevent. The most important thing is to remain calm and listen to your doctor and nurses during the pushing phase. They can help you push at the right time.

Anyone have advice on how to treat bursitis of the shoulder at home?

Dr. Frank Holmes
Sports Medicine 23 years experience
Rest, ice, NSAIDs: Assuming the diagnosis of bursitis is correct, initial treatment includes rest from aggravating activities (particularly overhead activities and lifting), ice to the shoulder for 20 minutes 3-4 times/day and anti-inflammatories (nsaids) such as advil or aleve (naproxen). Make sure that you read the warning label before taking these. Do realize that subacromial bursitis often occurs with a rotator cuff tear.
