Is electrical muscle stimulation machine for physical therepy for a previous shoulder dislocation helpful?

Is electrical muscle stimulation machine for physical therepy for a previous shoulder dislocation helpful?

Yes.: It can improve muscle and nerve function, and improve circulation to the area. A damaged area of tissue will have altered voltage on the surface of the cells.

Dislocation: I will assume that someone corrected (reduced) the dislocation. The most likely reason is simply the way you are holding your shoulder. Less likely would be to relative atrophy. With proper rehabilitation this should resolve. Your muscles are tense also from how you are "holding" your shoulder. I suggest seeing an orthopaedist.
