I dislocated it a while back in a fall. Occasionally, when I move it the wrong way, it will pop out of its socket. Here is how I reset it myself.
Place the elbow (of the same arm w/ the dislocation) between the thighs.
RELAX the shoulder muscles and keep them relaxed. That seems to be important.
Clasp the hands together. Then use your hands to push the arm, on it's pivot with the elbow between the thighs, to the outside away from you.
If I'm relaxed, it will pop back into its socket. It doesn't hurt near as bad as the dislocation. In face, it's a great relief.
Now I have no degree in medicine. I just figured out how to do this on my own because I didnt want to go back into the hospital. I had to wait for a
long time and was in some serious pain, and no way was I going back unless I really had to.
If anyone with a medical background has a problem with this method, or any refinements, please speak up. I'm all ears.
