Shoulder dislocations are when the “ball” of the “ball and socket joint” gets forcefully moved out of the “socket” normally through trauma (in sports, a fall, a car accident, etc.). These can occur in any direction (front, back, or down), but the most common is the anterior (front) dislocation. A shoulder dislocation can be a very serious injury, especially if it is not able to relocate itself on its own (called spontaneous relocation). In those cases, the patient should go to the nearest emergency room to have the shoulder joint put “back into place.” In other cases, the shoulder muscles need to be specifically strengthened so that they can help to prevent another dislocation. This is best accomplished using Kinesio® Taping Method and Funhab(TM) which strengthen the muscles that are weak and loosen the ones that are too tight. It is also vital that the shoulder blade muscles, called the scapular stabilizers are in the proper balance in order to help position the shoulder in a way that minimizes the risk for injury.
