What Does Shoulder Dislocation Treatment Involve?

The shoulder is a “ball and socket” joint that consists of the top of the humerus bone (the ball) and the glenoid (the socket), which is a cavity that’s formed by the end of the scapula bone.  When the ball is dislodged from the socket, shoulder dislocation treatment is necessary to restore joint stability and function.

An orthopedic doctor can take one of several treatment approaches to address a dislocated shoulder:

  • Closed reduction – The process of placing the humerus bone back into the joint socket using gentle maneuvers. A sedative or muscle relaxant may be given to ease any discomfort.
  • Immobilization – Temporarily immobilizing the shoulder joint by wearing a splint or sling, then participating in physical therapy to promote proper joint alignment, range of motion, and stability.
  • Surgery – Surgically repositioning the shoulder joint if surrounding tissues are damaged or if conservative measures aren’t effective.

I was able to get a office visit on short notice. It seemed to be a very busy day. Rebecca took the time to listen to all of my issues and discuss a plan for additional treatment. I have always been impressed with her knowledge and bed side manner.

Dr. Yakkanti did my knee replacement in June. He is an excellent surgeon with a great bedside manner. I have recovered nicely and plan to have my other knee replaced within the next year. I would highly recommend Dr. Yakkanti to anyone thinking about knee replacement!
