Shoulder Dislocation

shoulder dislocation

A shoulder dislocation occurs when the bones that make up the shoulder are no longer in alignment. This most commonly occurs after a fall on an outstretched arm. This causes the ligaments that protect the shoulder joint to tear. Sometimes a dislocation may be associated with a fracture or rotator cuff tear.
