If you have dislocated your shoulder after an accident, you’ll know that the rehabilitation period can take from three to four months. In order to strengthen your shoulder and help it to heal, carrying out dislocated shoulder exercises will normally be recommended by your doctor or physiotherapist. These can also help to reduce the risk of you dislocating your shoulder again in future. Dislocated shoulder exercises should be carried out whilst you are healing after your accident, and it’s during this time that you may also wish to think about making a personal injury claim, if somebody else caused your accident.
What can dislocated shoulder exercises actually do?
Carrying out shoulder rotations and isometric shoulder exercises help your shoulder joint to heal more quickly, especially if you have damaged tissues surrounding the shoulder blade. These types of exercises are also beneficial for reducing pain, which could mean taking fewer painkillers or not needing to take them at all. Keeping your shoulder mobile will help it to heal, so you could be back at work sooner if you ensure you carry out your exercises on a daily basis or as often as recommended to you by your doctor or physiotherapist.
A dislocated shoulder is a fairly common injury to experience after a fall, but it is a painful one that can take time to heal. So if your accident was caused by somebody else, you could make a claim for compensation for your pain, suffering and any financial losses you have experienced as a result of your accident.
