    Meniscus Tear Treatment

    A shoulder dislocation occurs when the upper arm bone (humerus) is forced out of the shoulder blade’s socket (scapula) socket due to a sudden accident or trauma. It causes severe pain and discomfort in the shoulder while making it difficult to maintain stability in the shoulder joints. In some cases, shoulder dislocation surgery may be required to repair the damaged joint and improve function.

    Shoulder dislocation surgery is a good option for recurrent chronic shoulder dislocation.

    It is also recommended for those with a major injury to the ligaments or the shoulder joint bones. The surgery is done to repair or reconstruct the damaged tissue and help the joint to regain stability in the shoulder.

    The shoulder dislocation surgery is performed under the influence of general anaesthesia. It can be performed with the open or arthroscopic technique. The surgery can be done in around 2 to 3 hours, and the healing period can vary between weeks to a few months.

    The healing period is unique for individuals and varies as per the extent of the damage to the shoulder joint. After the surgery, the patient would have to wear the sling for several weeks to prevent any pressure on the shoulder and allow the shoulder joint to recover completely. Physical therapy is required after the surgery to help gain mobility and strength in the operated area.

    Thus, shoulder dislocation surgery is an effective option for recurrent chronic shoulder dislocation. It is also recommended for those with a major injury to the ligaments or the shoulder joint bones. It is a great way to improve the quality of life by reducing pain, improving stability and increasing the range of motion.
    Also, ensure that you are going for the surgical procedure only after all non-surgical procedures and treatments have been tried and did not deliver successful results. To get a complete idea of whether you should undergo the procedure, it is best to consult an orthopaedic surgeon who would assess your situation and suggest it accordingly. So, book your appointment now and get effective treatment.

    Dr. Aditya Sai is a gemstone. My father-in-law had a tendon injury while climbing stairs in my hometown, Odisha, and the doctor there made us nervous like anything; he asked us to rush to Bhubaneswar or Visakhapatnam immediately and get the surgery done within 7 days. Thank God, I live in Mumbai and learned about Dr. Aditya Sai through a mutual friend, and I took an appointment. Next morning, my father-in-law flew from Odisha to Mumbai, and we met Dr. Aditya Sai. Believe me, he made us so comfortable, and first he made us understand the exact situation, the need for an MRI, and in what scenarios surgery is required, etc. After all the diagnoses, he prescribed special footwear for my father-in-law for 6 weeks. Today, as I write this post, without surgery, my father-in-law is absolutely perfect and is about to go to the physiotherapists for recovery. Thank you, Dr. Aditya Sai. ๐Ÿ™

    What is shoulder dislocation, and when should you receive treatment?

    Shoulder dislocation occurs when the upper arm bone, called the humerus in the shoulder joint, is knocked out of its socket, called the glenoid. The most common causes of shoulder dislocation are falls, vehicle accidents, and sports injuries.

    Patients with dislocated shoulders generally experience severe shoulder pain with swelling or bruising. You can also have trouble moving your arm and feel numbness or weakness in your arm, neck, hand, or finger.

    One of the primary situations in which individuals may need treatment for shoulder dislocation is when they experience recurrent dislocations. Weakness in the muscles around the shoulder can contribute to these recurrent dislocations. Recurrent shoulder dislocations often lead to chronic instability, discomfort, and pain.

    When shoulder dislocation starts affecting your ability to do everyday tasks or participate in sports, it becomes essential to seek treatment. The inability to perform everyday tasks or participate in sports can significantly disrupt your life. Hence, you must consult a physician to address the dislocation and its root causes.

    A shoulder dislocation that is not taken seriously or managed properly can result in complications like nerve or blood vessel damage, chronic instability, and arthritis. It also can damage the ligaments, tendons, or surrounding structures.

    Treatment After Reduction of the Dislocation

    If an individual is suspected of shoulder dislocation, the doctor will perform imaging tests to confirm it, such as an X-ray, CT, or MRI. These scans can show the dislocation and check for broken bones or other soft tissue damage.

    On diagnosis of a dislocated shoulder, the primary treatment step is to get the arm back into its socket. This procedure is called a closed reduction. Before performing a closed reduction, pain relievers or local anesthetic will be used to numb the shoulder area.

    After the physician makes a closed reduction, the affected area must be immobilized for a few weeks using slings or splints. Immobilizing the dislocated area helps hold the shoulder in place and promotes better healing. The patient may be advised to do light exercises and apply ice to the injured shoulder to relax it.

    Painkillers may also be prescribed to alleviate the pain and any inflammation. Any strenuous activity that puts stress on your dislocated shoulder must be avoided.

    Surgery is required if the shoulder dislocations are associated with severe damage to ligaments or other soft tissues or if the individual is prone to repeated shoulder dislocations.

    At the Shoulder and Knee Clinic, Dr. Aditya Sai offers the latest surgical techniques, including arthroscopy (minimally invasive treatment) for shoulder dislocations. Our latest treatment methods ensure a faster recovery and reduced post-operative discomfort for the patient.

    Shoulder Dislocation Treatment Procedure in Mumbai

    The treatment options for a dislocated shoulder depend on the severity of the dislocation and the overall general health of the affected individual.

    For most shoulder dislocations, orthopedics generally follow conservative treatment methods. After a closed reduction, doctors immobilize the injured area using a sling or splint.

    Anti-inflammatory medications will be prescribed, and rehabilitation exercises and physical therapy will be done to strengthen the muscles. However, the recovery outcome depends on the patient’s commitment to rehabilitation therapy.

    At Shoulder and Knee Clinic, we provide customized rehabilitation therapies according to the unique health requirements of individuals.

    Doctors perform surgery in cases with recurrent shoulder dislocation or when the dislocation causes wear and tear of the ligaments, tendons, and other soft tissues.

    Dr. Aditya Sai, our Orthopedic surgeon with 15-plus years of experience, specializes in shoulder surgery. The surgery repairs the damaged tissues and helps regain the stability of the shoulder joints.

    Shoulder dislocation surgery is conducted under general anesthesia. It can be done as an open surgery or as a minimally invasive arthroscopic approach. The surgery typically lasts about 2 to 3 hours, and the recovery time can vary, ranging from several weeks to a few months.

    In arthroscopic surgery for shoulder dislocation, small incisions are made near the dislocated site. The surgeon monitors and repairs the damaged site using the arthroscope (a tiny device with a camera attached). Since the procedure is less invasive, recovery is quicker.

    Expected Outcome from Shoulder Dislocation Treatment

    Usually, after a shoulder dislocation, a complete recovery takes about a few months. The use of splints or slings aids in better healing of the shoulder. Additionally, rehabilitation activities will continue for months after the joint is healed to improve the stability and tone of the muscles.

    Following the recommended rehabilitation exercises after shoulder dislocation helps attain an increased range of motion. Most people can return to their usual activities after 4 to 6 weeks of physical therapy. However, they should be careful not to lift heavy things or strain their shoulders during this period.

    The recovery outcomes depend mainly on the severity of the injury and the choice of treatment for a dislocated shoulder. As the shoulder injury heals, the pain and discomfort reduce.

    Post-operative Care for Shoulder Dislocation

    Here are some things to remember after a shoulder dislocation treatment.

    • Proper wound care is important to prevent infections. The surgical site should be kept dry and clean, and regular dressing changes must be done.
    • Pain management can be effectively carried out by following the recommended dose of pain medications and with proper immobilization.
    • Continue with the exercises and physical therapy to improve shoulder functions and prevent stiffness. Rehabilitation exercises enhance shoulder strength and mobility.
    • Stick to conducting regular follow-up appointments with the orthopedics to monitor recovery progress.

    Risk Factors of Shoulder Dislocation

    Some of the risk factors associated with Shoulder dislocation are discussed below:

    Recurrent Dislocations: Even after successful treatment, the shoulder may repeatedly dislocate. Rehabilitation exercises and surgery generally help in preventing recurrent dislocations.

    Shoulder Stiffness: Post-treatment, some patients may experience shoulder stiffness or reduced range of motion.

    Nerve or Blood Vessel Injuries: During dislocation or surgical interventions, there is a risk of damaging nearby nerves or blood vessels.

    Infection: Following surgical procedures, there is a small risk of infection at the incision site. Keeping the surgical site dry and clean helps in reducing infections.

    Surgical complications: There is a very small chance of surgical complications like bleeding, blood clots, or allergic reaction to anesthesia.

    Always discuss your concerns with the doctor. Strictly adhere to the post-operative care instructions provided by the medical team. Doing your exercises, following wound care practices, and avoiding any stress on your shoulder lowers the chances of any risks and promotes better healing and faster recovery.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    The shoulder joint is known as the ball and socket joint. Shoulder dislocation happens when the humerus moves out of its location.

    When a patient suffers from a shoulder dislocation, the primary considerations for a doctor include pain control and joint relocation. First, it is essential to look at your health history. Your health care provider will give attention to your previous medical history to understand the mechanism of the injury. They may ask you questions about the damage and try to understand the circumstances surrounding the injury. The medical care provider may ask questions about your allergies, medications, and past medical history. Your answers will help them decide the course of treatment. The questions are followed by a physical examination of the injured area. In case of an anterior dislocation, the shoulder looks "squared-off." It isn't easy to figure out posterior dislocation by looking at the shoulders. In case of posterior dislocation, the medical care provider may suggest an X-ray.

    Shoulder dislocation needs to be treated at the earliest. The delay in treatment can enhance the pain and swelling. The pain may become unbearable. Therapy helps in moving the arm bone back into the shoulder socket. It reduces the pain and swelling to some extent.

    • Anti-inflammatory painkillers: Painkillers help in reducing inflammation. It is advised to take the drugs after your doctor's recommendation. Painkillers should not be consumed for a longer duration as they may cause side effects. Some of the side effects include the risk of bleeding, ulcers, heart attacks, and heart strokes.
    • Physical activities: Light exercises like stretching helps in reducing the swelling. It provides the required movements to the muscles. However, it is recommended to take your doctor's advice before starting the stretching and strengthening exercises.

In case of repeated dislocation, you may need surgery to tighten the ligaments around the shoulder. The shoulder dislocation surgery costs in Mumbai depends on the severity of your case, the availability of the doctor, the location of the hospital, and various other factors.
