How Long Is The Recovery Period For Shoulder Dislocation?
Hello. I am awkward. Last week I just had a dislocation on my right shoulder, and finally a doctor had done the treatment at the hospital. After checking and repositioning, there is no damage from the muscles or joints etc. Well after consulting a doctor, my hands had to be bandaged for a month, I couldn’t let go (except taking a shower). Now whereas from the article above after a few days the joints must be moved so as not to stiffen. Though my condition after this dislocation is fairly good. Are there any suggestions for me?
Hello Rangga, thank you for asking.
The shoulder joint is shaped like a ball that can spin inside its sockets. This allows the arm to move freely in all directions. Shoulder joints are prone to dislocation due to various things, for example due to accidents, sports, strenuous activities, and so on. The dislocation certainly gives pain and can be accompanied by swelling and redness. Dislocation is easier for people who are very young or elderly. Dislocation must be handled properly so that the function of the shoulder joint is not disturbed.
Depending on each case, the treatment and treatment is different. Indeed, in certain cases the doctor can recommend that the shoulder joint be moved slowly and gradually, to prevent stiffness. But in other cases, the doctor may suggest immobilisation with a certain amount of time. We certainly do not know for sure your condition. Therefore, you should ask the treating doctor again. If the doctor says you can start training your shoulder joint for a few minutes a day, then you can do it.
Hopefully this answer can be of little benefit. Regards.
