A dislocated shoulder is a painful condition where the upper arm bone pops out of its socket in the shoulder joint. If you experience severe pain, limited range of motion, swelling, and instability in your shoulder, you may have a dislocated shoulder. Please consult Dr. Gelber to explore your treatment options for a dislocated shoulder.
What is a Dislocated Shoulder?
A dislocated shoulder occurs when the upper arm bone (humerus) is forcibly pushed or pulled out of its socket in the shoulder joint. This traumatic injury is often the result of a fall, sports-related impact, or accident. It can cause intense pain, swelling, and limited mobility in the affected shoulder. In severe cases, the dislocation may damage surrounding tissues and blood vessels. Please contact Dr. Gelber promptly to realign the joint and manage your symptoms.
Common Symptoms of Dislocated Shoulder:
- Severe shoulder pain
- Swelling and bruising
- Limited range of motion
- Visible deformity or bulging
- Tingling or numbness in the arm
- Weakness in the affected arm and shoulder
- Instability or feeling of the shoulder “giving way”
Regenerative medicine involves innovative treatments like Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) and stem cell injections. PRP injections use your blood components to promote healing, while stem cell injections introduce stem cells to aid tissue repair and regeneration.
