Best not to: It is always best to seek medical attention after a shoulder dislocation. However this is not always possible and one may have to relocate their own shoulder at times. There are several ways to accomplish this one way is to me face down on a bed with the arm hanging over the side and have traction placed on the dislocated arm straight down.
