Which treatment works the best and fastest for shoulder joint dislocation?

Which treatment works the best and fastest for shoulder joint dislocation?

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.

Why does the anterior side of the shoulder joint capsule tear more commonly than any other side during shoulder dislocations?

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 : 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
