Shoulder Subluxation: Causes, Complications, and Treatments
Your shoulder joint is comprised of the ball of your arm bone (or humerus) and a socket (or glenoid). As the most mobile joint in your entire body, it’s also the most susceptible to dislocation or shoulder subluxation.
Dislocation occurs when the humerus is pulled out of its socket due to injury or trauma. Shoulder subluxation, however, happens when the humerus comes only partially out of the glenoid socket.
