Dislocated shoulder therapy can be very useful in helping you recover from this injury. The shoulder is a ball-and-socket joint which gives us an impressive range of motion – ideal when we want to move our arms around as much as we do. However, if the shoulder pops out of place it can damage the tendons, ligaments, nerves and blood vessels in the immediate area, even if the joint can be popped back in easily by trained medical staff.
Since this injury can be painful and it can lead to ongoing problems, seeking dislocated shoulder therapy following the injury is a very good idea. Some people are offered this on the NHS, and it may consist of a few physiotherapy appointments to learn exercises that will benefit you when getting better.
Can you pay for additional dislocated shoulder therapy?
You can, and you may wish to do so if your normal therapy sessions are not doing the trick. Moreover, you may wish to seek private treatment, particularly if you received therapy at the time of the accident and you are still experiencing problems some time afterwards.
While every dislocated shoulder is painful and will involve some recovery time, some people experience more serious symptoms than others. Surgery is rarely needed in any case, but it is possible to experience pain and discomfort in the affected shoulder for a long time following the original injury.
Making sure you know whether you could claim
Was someone responsible for causing the accident that led to the dislocation? If you suspect this to be true, regardless of whether you paid for dislocated shoulder therapy or not, you should contact a legal expert to see if a compensation claim would work in your favour. This is easier to do than you may suspect, especially since you are already in the right place to do it. You can take our 30-second test right now to determine the odds of making a successful claim.
