Could a shoulder dislocate and go right back in?

Yes, very common: You describe a shoulder subluxation, whereby the shoulder joint transiently moves out of place enough to give a sensation of pain (sometimes) and discomfort.

For what reason did my shoulder dislocate so easy?

Depends: If you've had any previous injuries to your shoulder, you may have a damaged joint or supporting soft tissues which make you more susceptible.

Either way, there are treatments that can help, all the way up to surgery, so see a physician if this is a persistent problem. ...Read more

This is my 6th month after my shoulder dislocated. Can I perform bodyweight parallel dips and chin-ups?

Maybe maybe not: Start out slowly and do not reinjure the shoulder
by 6 mo it should be pretty well healed but a 6 mo time out of exercise will mean you need to gradually ramp up your activity
once dislocated there is always an increased risk of redislcoation. ...Read more

This depends if your: Shoulder was ever reduced or if if is unstable at this time. However, cardiovascular exercises such as a stairmaster, elliptical machine, exercise bike or treadmill should be fine. Weight machines should be fine unless they put your shoulder at risk by overhead maneuvers which would be more of a risk with free weights if lifted higher than your chest.

You need diagnosis: Connective tissue disease may or may not apply to you.

You should see a doctor who deals with these disorders to determine if there is anything to be concerned about. The primary treatment for the most common causes of your symptoms is physical therapy. ...Read more

What are the many ways I can make my shoulder never dislocate again?

What are the many ways I can make my shoulder never dislocate again?

Suggestion: Assuming that you suffer from anterior dislocations, I would recommend physical therapy. Also, concentrate on the exercises for shoulder... If you are doing push-ups avoid going deeper than 90 degrees at the elbow since this will put your shoulder in a vulnerable position for dislocation. Avoid tricep dips for sure! If conservative treatments do not work, you may need surgery. ...Read more

hurt shoulder bout a week ago. Pain only decreased a little. Would I know if my shoulder is dislocated? Could it just be a bruise bc I can move it?

hurt shoulder bout a week ago. Pain only decreased a little. Would I know if my shoulder is dislocated? Could it just be a bruise bc I can move it?

Likely strain injury: Because you can move your shoulder, it is not dislocated. You may have strained or bruised your outer deltoid muscles or deeper rotator cuff muscles. You can also sprain the capsule of both the actual shoulder joint or the acromioclavicular (AC) joint. Decreasing pain and improving motion suggests a mild self-limiting injury. If pain persists past 2-3 weeks, seek formal evaluation. ...Read more

Aching neck (not stiff) In some mornings, Not all. Lasts an entire day. Pain radiates a little. Left Shoulder recently dislocated. What could it be?

Injury to neck: Any injury severe enough to dislocate a shoulder could certainly cause injury to the neck. Because the shoulder dislocation is very painful, the neck injury symptoms might be over looked. That is why when we examine someone for a shoulder injury we also SHOULD examine the neck (as the 2 are very intimately related). And vice versa. Please see your doctor re your neck symptoms. ...Read more
