If you're like me you may find yourself asking, what is a shoulder subluxation?Physio-pedia to help us out:
Glenohumeral subluxation is defined as a partial or incomplete dislocation that usually stems from changes in the mechanical integrity of the joint. In a subluxation, the humeral head slips out of the glenoid cavity as a result of weakness in the rotator cuff or a blow to the shoulder area. A subluxation can occur in one of three types: anterior (forward), posterior (backward), and inferior (downward). The difference with a shoulder dislocation is the fact that the humeral head pops back into its socket. A subluxation can occur in one of three types: anterior (forward), posterior (backward), and inferior (downward). Anterior dislocation often occurs when the arm is outstretched and is forced backwards.
