Dislocated Shoulder

Question:

I dislocated my shoulder two years ago, but it still feels loose and a bit sore when i play basketball. Why hasn’t it healed?

Answer:

It’s likely that you have a torn labrum, which usually doesn’t heal on its own. To confirm the diagnosis, you’ll need an MRI to find out invasive treatment is arthroscopic surgery (or key hole surgery). Younger patients are more likely to need the surgery to prevent future dislocations. After surgery, you’ll need to avoid strenuous upper limb activities for 6 to 8 weeks until the labrum is completely healed.
