Anterior dislocation of the shoulder (glenohumeral) joint is commonly seen in accident and emergency (A&E) and trauma clinics. Shoulder injuries may be classified in two ways. The first categorises injuries as either intra- or extra-articular, the second classification revolves around the static and the dynamic stabilisers of the shoulder .
Anterior dislocation of the shoulder (glenohumeral) joint is a common presentation to hospital emergency departments (ED) and accounts for 90?95% of all shoulder dislocations . The most frequent mechanism of injury was a fall (60-70% of cases), and in 85-95% of the patients, the overall recurrence rate in all ages was 45-55%, in the 14-20 year age group.
Now a days, the treatment of traumatic shoulder dislocation has included immobilisation for varying periods of time followed by physiotherapy.
