Although anterior dislocations are by far the most common, some patients do have posterior shoulder dislocations and will not have a bulge in the front of their shoulder. Pain and loss of motion are common with shoulder dislocations in either direction. X-rays can help determine the direction of the dislocation.

In brief: Obvious deformity.

There will be an obvious deformity of the shoulder joint, the involved shoulder will appear lower than normal, and the head of the arm bone may be prominent.
