Shoulder Dislocation Treatment | Home Remedies for Shoulder Pain

Shoulder dislocation is a very painful injury caused by the collision with an object or hard fall or any others. The shoulder dislocation occurs when scapula separated from humerus at the shoulder joint. The shoulder joint is commonly dislocated for its wide range of movement, shallowness of the glenoid, laxity of the capsule and for the fact that integrity of the joint depends on the protection of the surrounding muscles. There are three different types of shoulder dislocation, of which the first is much the commoner

  1. Sub glenoid Dislocation — This is a rare type and occurs when the head can manage to keep itself below the glenoid.

  2. Posterior (subacromial or subspinous type)— This may result either from a direct backward trauma on the head, e.g. fall on the front of the shoulder, or a forced internal rotation of the adducted arm.

    Anterior Dislocation (sub-coracoid type)—This means that the head of the humerus is displaced anterior to the shoulder joint. This result in two ways - either due to a fall on the outstretched hand or due to a fall on the abducted arm.

Important Clinical Features:


Loss of function.


History of violence.

Arm in abduction, opposite hand supports the elbow.

Shoulder - flattened with loss of resistance.

Limitation of movements of the shoulder.

Line of the arm passes medial to the glenoid.

Head palpable beneath the coracoid process.

Shortening of the arm.

Abnormal prominence at the head of the humerus.

The most obvious sign in posterior dislocation is fixed the internal rotation of the arm.

Callaway's test — increased vertical circumstance of the axilla.
