What is dislocation of the shoulder?

Author of the answer : Dr Régis GuinandCatégorie : instabilité

A dislocation is a loss (often brutal) of contact between the two bony parts of a joint.
Several types of luxation exist, the most frequent being by far the previous dislocations.

The occurrence of a dislocation is obviously painful and requires a reduction by the intervention of another person

If the joint is reduced spontaneously or following a slight movement on the part of the wounded one speaks then of ‘suluxation’.
This episode (traumatic most often) damages the articulation at the level of the means of union between the 2 bones concerned (ligaments, articular capsule, bone reliefs …) and augurs of recurrences or leaves the shoulder painful to the use (apprehension of a recurrence or ‘unstable painful shoulder’).
