Shoulder Reduction - Stimson's Technique
Step by step
Examine the shoulder. Typical physical signs of an anteriorly dislocated shoulder joint, are a palpable prominent head of the humerus under the clavicle and loss of the deltoid contour with the shoulder appearing flattened.
Examine the neurovascular status of the affected arm before starting the reduction. Most injuries are caused by dislocation of the joint itself but can also be caused by the reduction. Therefore neurovascular examination should be performed before and after the reduction.
