A shoulder dislocation is when the top of a person’s arm comes out of the socket. This is because the shoulder joint is generally unstable making it more likely to slip out of place. A shoulder dislocation usually causes the tissues and nerves surrounding the shoulder joint to become damaged. Many shoulder dislocations can cause chronic instability and weakness within the joint. Complications from shoulder dislocations may include muscle, ligaments, and tendon tears, damage to the nerve or blood vessels or the shoulder, and the shoulder becoming unstable.
