What is a Shoulder Dislocation?
Shoulder dislocations can be partial or complete. Partial dislocation (subluxation) involves the ball of the upper arm coming partially out of the socket. In a complete dislocation, the ball comes all the way out of the socket.
What causes Shoulder Dislocation?
Repetitive movement can also cause shoulder instability and dislocation. Repeated actions such as those experienced in swimming, volleyball and tennis can cause shoulder instability. Jobs that require regular overhead work such as carpentry or house painting can also stretch out the shoulder ligaments and make them loose.
