Shoulder Dislocation

see also Shoulder Injuries and Conditions
see also Shoulder Separation

Shoulder dislocation occurs when the ball of the shoulder joint is forced out of the socket (dislocation of the glenohumeral joint). As a consequence of injury to the ligaments and capsule that stabilize the joint, the patient may experience a range of symptoms - from a sense of looseness of the joint resulting in “slipping”, subluxation or partial dislocation, to recurrent complete dislocation of the joint.
