Dislocated Shoulder

, ,

Atlanta Physical TherapistsA dislocated shoulder is an injury that is caused by a fall or a blow that causes the top of the arm bone to pop out of the shoulder socket. The shoulder is prone to slipping out of place because of its incredible mobility. The arm can move in more directions than any other joint system in the body; because of this flexibility, however, a dislocated shoulder is a common injury. Sovereign Rehabilitation is a comprehensive physical therapy and rehabilitation company located in Atlanta, Georgia. We specialize in helping patients with shoulder injuries recover fully, as quickly as possible. At Sovereign Rehabilitation we want to partner with you and your physician to develop a comprehensive treatment program customized to your specific needs.
