Health Tip: Treating a Dislocated Shoulder

(HealthDay News) -- Capable of turning in a variety of directions, the shoulder is among the body's most mobile joints. That makes it easy to dislocate, says the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons.

To treat a partially or completely dislocated shoulder, a doctor will place the upper arm bone back into the joint socket. Severe pain should stop once the shoulder is back in place.

The next step often is immobilization of the shoulder by a sling for several weeks. The sore area can then be iced up to four times a day.

After pain and swelling go down, the doctor typically prescribes rehabilitation exercises.
