how to treat an injured or dislocated shoulder and injury in thigh rotater cup area?

Depends: This is a complex issue. A person < 45 yo usually doesn't need surgery after one shoulder dislocation. A person > 45 may have torn a rotator cuff and may need surgery. It is my strong recommendation that you see an orthopedic surgeon with experience with shoulders for a thorough discussion of all the issues.
