Dislocated Shoulder

Posted on behalf of Atlanta Orthopedic Surgeon

Atlanta Orthopedic Doctors for AthletesA dislocated shoulder is a common injury among athletes of certain sports. This painful sports injury involves the arm bone dislodging from the socket and causing extreme pain and loss of mobility in the arm. Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians is an orthopedic and sports medicine practice that features a dedicated team of Interventional Sport physicians and orthopedic specialists. We specialize in helping athletes recover from their injuries and return to peak performance levels. Our use of the most advanced and minimally invasive treatment methods sets us apart from those physicians who want to use surgery as a first option. At Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians, we are committed to helping our patients recover from an injury in the least invasive manner.

It is very important that a dislocated shoulder be treated right away. The shoulder needs to be re-set as quickly as possible to prevent further swelling and damage. Once the arm is put back in the socket much of the pain is alleviated. However, this does not mean that the shoulder is healed and can be used normally. After the shoulder bone is repositioned, the specialists at Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians use minimally invasive treatment methods to promote healing and to prevent future injuries from occurring.

At Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians, we pride ourselves on offering a low patient-to-provider ratio because we know that it takes time and personalized care to accurately find the most appropriate treatment plan. While we are committed to using the most minimally invasive methods possible to help our patients recover from a dislocated shoulder, those who have repeated dislocations may require surgery in order to prevent further dislocation and the problems associated with repeat injury. Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians is one of the leading providers of endoscopic surgery in the Southeast that allows for a shorter recovery time and fewer complications associated with surgery.

If you have continued pain or lack of mobility due to a dislocated shoulder, contact Ortho Sport & Spine today to schedule a consultation with one of our physicians. We look forward to helping you recover from your dislocated shoulder so that you can live your best, and active, life.

A Little Known Muscle We Know As the Psoas

There is a little known muscle known as the psoas. You pronounce it “SO-as.” It’s surprising how so few people have ever heard of this muscle due to the fact that it is so vital to all movements. Almost all activities and sports that you participate in require the recruitment of your psoas muscles.
