Shoulder was slightly dislocated but it went back in eventually-but it hurts to move it at all and i end up using other arm to support it. What to do?

Shoulder was slightly dislocated but it went back in eventually-but it hurts to move it at all and i end up using other arm to support it. What to do?

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
