Depends: It depends on the severity of the injury. Need to restrengthen muscles and allow damaged/stretched ligamentous attachments to heal. Physical therapy, or specific prescribed exercises, will help. Be sure to stretch appropriately as the healing process progresses to maintain flexibility. The amount of time and intensity required for training differs based on severity.

Reduce the joint: Initial treatment is to reduce the dislocation, after which most are placed in a sling. It is important to determine how much structural damage has been done so an evaluation by an orthopedic surgeon is recommended.....this does not mean surgery is required but there are some associated injuries and factors that may influence your treatment choices and your decision as to what is best for you.

How is a shoulder dislocation typically reduced?

How is a shoulder dislocation typically reduced?

Depends...: The way that shoulders are reduced is dependent on the direction it has dislocated. Many shoulder dislocations will reduce spontaneously as your are moving around on your way to the emergency room. If the shoulder is still dislocated in the emergency room, the reduction maneuver chosen by the doctor will be based on the xray findings.

How harmful for your health is the pain after shoulder dislocation is put back?

How harmful for your health is the pain after shoulder dislocation is put back?

Pain varies: Shoulder pain after a glenohumeral reduction (put back in) is typically less than while it is out of place. For first time dislocations the pain level tends to be higher, but individual tolerance must also be considered. After any dislocation/ reduction you should have an x-ray regardless of pain level to rule out any damage to the bony structures that may have occured during the trauma.
