Shoulder dislocations

Find out more about one of the most painful injuries.

Dislocated shoulders are fairly common in all contact sports and can be incredibly painful. If an arm is rotated far enough and with sufficient force, the ball may come out of its socket. A doctor can quickly slot it back in place but the arm will need to be put in a sling for two or three weeks and activity should be avoided for a month and a half. Surgery may be required too, especially among teenagers for whom recurrence is fairly common.
