Voluntary dislocation of shoulder

P. Shvartzman, N. Guy

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


    Voluntary dislocation of the shoulder is rarely seen by primary care physicians, but they must be able to recognize it and treat it correctly. Patients often use this ability to attract attention to themselves. Since the dislocations are painless and are performed at will, surgical intervention is not required. Proper treatment involves preventing repetition of the dislocations and providing emotional support for the patient.
