As an expert orthopedic specialist at Empire Orthopaedic and Pain Management Specialists, we are dedicated to providing comprehensive care for a wide range of musculoskeletal conditions. Our practice is committed to delivering personalized treatment plans tailored to each patient's unique needs.

A shoulder dislocation occurs when the upper arm bone (humerus) becomes displaced from the shoulder socket (glenoid). This displacement can result from traumatic injuries, falls, or sudden twisting motions, causing significant pain, swelling, and instability in the shoulder joint. Shoulder dislocations are common orthopedic injuries, especially among athletes or individuals who engage in contact sports or activities that involve repetitive overhead movements. At Empire Orthopaedic and Pain Management Specialists, we specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of shoulder dislocations, offering prompt and comprehensive care to restore joint stability and function.

When you experience a shoulder dislocation, it can be a painful and disabling injury that requires immediate attention to prevent further damage and facilitate reduction of the dislocated joint. Our team of orthopedic specialists is experienced in managing shoulder dislocations of all types and understands the importance of prompt diagnosis and treatment.

Treatment options for shoulder dislocations at Empire Orthopaedic and Pain Management Specialists may include:

  • Reduction: The primary goal of treatment for a shoulder dislocation is to manually realign the displaced humerus back into the shoulder socket. Our orthopedic specialists perform reduction procedures using various techniques, such as closed reduction (manipulation of the bones without surgery) or open reduction (surgical realignment of the bones under anesthesia), depending on the severity and complexity of the dislocation.
  • Immobilization: After reduction, we may immobilize the shoulder joint with a sling or shoulder immobilizer to prevent further movement and stabilize the joint while it heals.
  • Rehabilitation: Following reduction and immobilization, we provide comprehensive rehabilitation programs focused on restoring range of motion, strength, and stability to the shoulder joint, promoting tissue healing, and preventing recurrence of dislocations.
  • Surgical intervention: In cases of recurrent or complex shoulder dislocations, surgical intervention may be necessary to repair damaged ligaments or structures within the shoulder joint and restore stability. Our orthopedic surgeons specialize in minimally invasive arthroscopic techniques for shoulder stabilization, optimizing outcomes and minimizing recovery time.
