Shoulder Dislocation and Shoulder Separation
Dislocated Shoulder is a condition in which the top of your arm bone can pop out of the socket after falling or suffering a traumatic blow. The shoulder joint has the ability to move in a wide range of motion, therefore, it can be vulnerable to slipping out of place. If untreated, it can become a chronic problem which leads to instability and weakness.
Separated Shoulder is a condition in which the ligaments that connect the collarbone to the shoulder blade are torn. This joint is called the acromioclavicular joint (AC).
- A visibly deformed or out-of-place shoulder
