Treatment for Shoulder Dislocation in Huntington, NY

Frequent Shoulder Dislocation
The shoulder is among the most mobile joints in the human body.  The persistent utilization of this joint is common for athletes that play sports like baseball, volleyball, and swimming, which may cause dislocation. This is due to the constant wear and tear of ligaments and tendons that surround the shoulder joint.  At Island Sports Physical Therapy, we provide treatment for shoulder dislocation in Huntington, NY as well as across Long Island. Our physical therapists are located in Huntington, East Northport, Glen Cove, Nesconset, East Meadow, and Coram are here to create tailored rehabilitation programs that will get you back on the court, in the pool, or on the field in no time!

What are My Symptoms?
Once an athlete has dislocated their shoulder, the chances of it dislocating again increase, causing an instability in the joint. The following symptoms of such instability include:

  • Shoulder pain
  • Shoulder giving out or a feeling of instability
  • Limited motion of shoulder

Treatment With Physical Therapy
Depending on the severity of the injury, the average healing period for a dislocated shoulder is between 4 and 12 weeks. Our therapists will conduct a complete assessment in order to create a program tailored to your specific needs that will help you get back in the game! These programs may include exercises that focus on:

  • Strength: After a dislocation injury, the muscles around the joint may be extremely weak. Depending on the severity of the injury, our therapists may incorporate certain exercises that will build up those weak muscles.
  • Range of Motion: Our therapists will take you through the motions as well as gently stretch you in order to help you gain back that range of motion.
  • Your Specific Sport: Our therapists will create exercises that are tailored to your specific sport which can help you regain comfortability with the motions.

Above all, it is important that you give your body a chance to rest once you’ve had a shoulder dislocation injury. Failure to do so will only prolong the healing process and cause the injury to recur. Our therapists at Island Sports Physical Therapy are dedicated to helping you heal and get you back to your top performance levels. Please visit us at our many locations in Huntington, East Northport, Glen Cove, Nesconset, East Meadow, and Coram or call us at 631-462-9595 today!
