Shoulder dislocation

Almost half of all luxations (dislocations) involve the shoulder joint: There is a large number of classifications for the various forms of shoulder luxation – dislocations can generally be divided according to their cause into traumatic and habitual luxations.

The patient then suffers from pain and reduced freedom of movement of the shoulder.

Traumatic luxations are triggered by a strong external exertion of force, for example due to accidents or over-exertion. In these cases, the dislocated joint must be returned to the original position (repositioned) as quickly as possible – for this the orthopaedic surgeon has several techniques available.

With an habitual luxation, the shoulder joint is repeatedly dislocated in the case of certain movements even without external exertion of force: The cause is often a previous traumatic luxation which has caused long-term damage to the shoulder joint.

Also in this case, repositioning should take place as quickly as possible – long-term improvement can be achieved with physiotherapeutic measures or a stabilisation operation.


Sports injuries or accidents often lead to shoulder dislocations.
