Pathophysiology: A dislocated shoulder is an indication of an injury where the upper arm bone pops out of the cup-shaped socket of the shoulder blade. The shoulder is the body's most mobile joint, which makes it susceptible to dislocation. It is the most dislocated joint of the body and it moves in several directions and most dislocations occur at the front of the shoulder. This condition is caused due to sports injuries, trauma which is not related to sports, and most commonly falls.
Symptoms: The major signs & symptoms include a visibly deformed or out-of-place shoulder, Swelling or bruising, intense pain and Inability to move the joint. Shoulder dislocation might also bring about numbness, weakness or shivering close to the injury, for example, in your neck or down your arm. The muscles in your shoulder might fit from the disturbance, regularly expanding the intensity of the pain. Treatment: Treatment for dislocated shoulder involve closed reduction (locating the displaced bone into the correct place with the help of sedatives), Surgery, immobilization with the help of a sling or a slint, medication and rehabilitation.
Gender distribution is bimodal, with peak incidence in men aged 20-30 years (with a male-to-female ratio of 9:1) and in women aged 61-80 years (with a female-to-male ratio of 3:1). Shoulder dislocation occurs more frequently in adolescents than in younger children because the weaker epiphyseal growth plates in children tend to fracture before dislocation occurs.
