What Causes Pain After A Dislocation?

Pain can be immense following a dislocation. The most common joints to become dislocated are the shoulder, fingers, hip, elbow, and acromion-clavicular joint. Pain following a dislocation is often caused by muscle spasms, ligamentous tears, or nerve compression.

Why Do I Keep Dislocating My Shoulder?

Recurrent dislocations occur because the joint has lost its stability and the ligaments and muscles surrounding it no longer provide sufficient support. This is problematic because when a joint keeps dislocating, it can cause long-term symptoms, like pain, weakness, the cognition that you have “a bad shoulder or hip” or a clicking sound with movement.

That is why early physiotherapy is so important after a fracture, to improve the stability of the joint and to strengthen the muscles around the joint to prevent long-term issues.

Physiotherapy Rehabilitation After A Dislocation

Physiotherapy generally begins as soon as possible or as soon as the sling may be removed. After the immobilization period, physiotherapy rehabilitation usually includes advice, education, and an exercise-based regimen (typically focusing on shoulder stability, coordination, and strength) aimed at restoring normal shoulder function.

During your rehabilitation program, our physiotherapists will use a combination of hands-on therapies like massage therapy and joint mobilizations to reduce pain and improve pain-free range of motion, and an individually designed exercise program to restore stability, coordination, and strength to get you back to the hobbies and sports you love to do without the fear of another dislocation.

Physiotherapy’s main objective is to restore a healthy, pain-free, and stable shoulder.

Physiotherapy Rehabilitation After A Fracture

Physiotherapy rehabilitation for fractures or dislocations usually begins immediately following the injury (unless there are certain contraindications).

During your physiotherapy program, our therapists will use a combination of hands-on therapies like massage therapy and joint mobilizations to reduce pain and improve pain-free range of motion. Our therapist may also implement an exercise program to restore strength, coordination, and endurance.

Our physiotherapists will also discuss with you ways to reduce pain at home by using modalities like heat/ice therapy or ultrasound therapy. Our therapists can provide advice for setting up your environment (for example, if you need a raised toilet seat) that may help limit the pain and fatigue associated with fractures or dislocations.

Man Treating Dislocation

Our physiotherapists will work together to provide you with a program tailored to your specific injury, level of function and condition. We use evidence-based practice (best practices) in all our rehabilitation programs so we can make sure that the treatment we recommend is effective for achieving optimal outcomes.

Call us today to book your appointment with one of our physiotherapists, who will be happy to discuss how we can help you get back on track.

Dublin Chiropractic & Physiotherapy Clinic is dedicated to providing the highest quality care for fractures and dislocations along with the best chiropractic services.

Laser Therapy After A Fracture Or Dislocation

Laser therapy is gaining popularity in physiotherapy and chiropractic clinics across Dublin. Laser Therapy can be used to treat fractures and dislocations because it has the ability to promote cellular metabolism (increase blood circulation) around the injury site, which speeds up healing by delivering more oxygen & nutrients into your cells while removing lactate ions that are formed during tissue injury.

Laser therapy lessens pain and swelling, increases blood flow to the area which speeds up healing by delivering more oxygen & nutrients into your cells while removing lactate ions that are formed during tissue injury, improves joint mobility through its anti-inflammatory properties, relaxes muscles around fractures or dislocations so you can start your physiotherapy rehabilitation sooner, and reduces the risk of fractures & dislocations becoming chronic by reducing scar formation.

Core Strengthening After A Fracture Or Dislocation

Having a strong core can help you recover from fractures or dislocations faster because it helps to stabilize your shoulders. It also protects them against future fractures & dislocations by increasing strength around the joints, which reduces stress on surrounding tissues that are commonly injured during fractures and dislocations.

A physiotherapist will be able to prescribe exercises to strengthen your core muscles while you are undergoing physiotherapy for fractures or dislocations. He/she will also be able to provide advice on how to use self-myofascial release (foam rolling) and other soft tissue massage techniques that can help restore flexibility in tight areas, increase blood flow around the injury site, improve muscle tissue quality, break up scar tissue adhesion (adhesions) that may have formed around fractures or dislocations.
