Recurrent dislocation in the right shoulder

About


The shoulder is a ball and socket joint. When the ball (humerus) is completely displaced out of the socket (glenoid), it results in a shoulder dislocation.


There is a 70-90% chance of recurring shoulder dislocation in people < 25 years of age.


- May be caused by a sudden jerk, lifting a heavy object, or due to an accident
- A visit to the doctor is necessary for resolving this issue
- May require X-ray examination, MRI, and/or CT scan
- Generally occurs in younger men and women (20-30 years old), generally while playing sports and in elderly women (60-80 years old)


About 80-94% of people under the age of 20 years, 26-48% of those younger than 40 years, and 0-10% of those older than 40 years develop shoulder dislocation.


Symptoms


Self-diagnosable:
You would need to visit the doctor for a proper diagnosis and treatment.
Patient may experience: Pain, tingling sensation, or numbness


Treatment


Self-care:
Make sure that you move the hand minimally and avoid jerks to the injured shoulder while on the way to the hospital/clinic.


Medications:
The doctor may prescribe painkillers, depending on the degree of pain you are experiencing. Treatment may involve non-invasive approach or surgical procedure. Generally, isometric exercises are prescribed to strengthen your muscles to make them more flexible and lower the chances of shoulder dislocation.
