All athletes can be prone to shoulder injuries but swimmers, volleyball, and baseball players are especially prone.
The shoulder is made up of two joints (glenohumeral joint and acromioclavicular joint) and eight muscles (subscapularis, latissimus dorsi, infraspinatus, teres minor, teres major, supraspinatus, deltoid and pectoralis major.
Shoulder dislocations are usually caused by a forceful blow to the front of the shoulder when outstretched or overhead. A shoulder subluxation occurs when the humeral heads slips partially out of the socket, but not completely out like a dislocation.
Following a shoulder dislocation, athletes usually complain of immediate pain with inability to move the shoulder or arm. Whereas some athletes might have mild instability and subluxations with minimal or no pain. Some may say the shoulder feels loose and slips out of place.
Athletes returning from shoulder dislocations usually return within 8-12 weeks, while shoulder subluxations can vary from a few days up to several weeks depending on the athletes symptoms, the extent of the injury, and the sport.
