Overview
Shoulder dislocation is a common injury in which your upper arm bone pops out of the cup-shaped socket that’s part of your shoulder blade. The shoulder is the body’s most mobile joint, which makes it susceptible to dislocation with dislocations commonly occurring in a forward and/ or downward direction. Shoulder dislocation can be partial, where the ball is only partially out of the socket & Shoulder dislocation can also be a full dislocation, where the ball is completely out of the socket. Therefore the recovery process of a shoulder dislocation depends on the cause and the severity of the dislocation.

Causes
Shoulders are one of the most movable joints in your body & also the most frequently dislocated joints. As it moves in several directions, your shoulder can dislocate forward, backward or downward, completely or partially. A dislocated shoulder may be caused by:
• Sports injuries

Symptoms

• Muscle spasms in your shoulder

Complications
• Tearing of the muscles, ligaments and tendons that reinforce your shoulder joint
• Nerve or blood vessel damage in or around your shoulder joint
• Shoulder instability, especially if you have a severe dislocation or repeated dislocations, which makes you more prone to re-injury.
• If you stretch or tear ligaments or tendons in your shoulder or damage nerves or blood vessels around your shoulder joint, you may need surgery to repair these tissues.
