Injury : You need evaluation and treatment from an orthopedic surgeon who has expertise in serious shoulder problems. If you underwent reduction by lesser experienced physicians, there may have been more injury, rotator cuff tear, ligament damage, undiagnosed additional injuries or inadequate reduction.
