Yes with guidance: We would recommend having an evaluation by a physical therapist first before going back to the gym so they can evaluate and make an exercise program specific to your needs. It is important to strengthen the muscle groups that stabilize the shoulder and to know which exercises and which machines can help you accomplish that goal. ...Read more

Maybe: Depending on what you want to do you might be able to do some exercises. But what you can do depends upon how long ago your shoulder was dislocated.

Possibility exists: There exists a group of connective tissue disorders that can be associated with excessive joint laxity and in some cases recurrent dislocations.

Pick best or fastest: Surgery may be the most reliable way to prevent your shoulder from dislocating again, but this certainly isn't the fastest way to deal with the injury, as post-op rehab takes several months. Physical therapy and a gradual return to activity will be a faster method of treatment, but it has a higher risk of a repeat dislocation. ...Read more

Why does the anterior side of the shoulder joint capsule tear more commonly than any other side during shoulder dislocations?
Instability forces: Shoulder stability is provided by the surrounding muscles, the glenohumeral ligaments/capsule and the labrum. The shoulder is most unstable during a trauma, when the shoulder is forced anteriorly (to the front) and inferiorly (below the shoulder). This puts significant force on the anterior capsule often resulting in tearing/stretching. An abducted & externally rotated shoulder is most vulnerable ...Read more
Are the physicians have an obligation to tell pt why they believe certain condition/injury exit or doesn't exist? If a person asks the physicians why they believe cranial cervical joint dislocation does or doesn’t exist, are they obligated to tell her why
I'm not sure "obligated" is the best word to use here. Doctors are put in a position to try to help people, but we, too, are human, and are prone to those things that make us humans. We make mistakes, sometimes we're wrong, and while it is certainly unprofessional, we also lose our patience. Sometimes there is just a personality clash that gets in the way of a good doctor-patient relationship.
Finding ourselves in the continual position of healing the sick tends to make many of us a bit egotistical too, and we don't like to be challenged. This is wrong, of course.
It's always a good idea to explain why you feel the diagnosis is this or that. But sometimes it's complicated, and with healthcare the way it is these days, the explanation is too lengthy and the waiting room is too full. But the short answer is you're right. You deserve a reasonable explanation, and you don't deserve to be judged or get a snotty answer. If you're not satisfied with the attention and answers you're getting from your doctor, it's in your best interest to seek another doctor.
I am not an orthopedist or neurologist, and i hope you don't mind my butting in to give an answer you probably heard before. Good luck. ...Read more
X-ray: It can sometimes be diagnosed with plain x-ray, but often a better study is ct scan which offers a 3-dimensional view of a 3-dimensional problem. Treatment is based on the severity of the dislocation, the direction of the dislocation, and whether it is acute or chronic. Suspected acute dislocations require early managment. ...Read more

I have upward anterior left SC joint dislocation but it's been 6weeks wnna have surgery what r the risks and can it really be back as it once were?
Not necessary: Repair of anterior SC dislocation is elective and mostly cosmetic (you trade a bump for a scar) posterior dislocation is fixed urgently or emergently if there is vascular or tracheal embarrassment. Chronic posterior dislocations are left alone. Overall if it's assymptomatic I'd leave it alone, these surgeries are very close to the great vessels with the attendant risks of vessel injury ...Read more
