What is shoulder dislocation?

Also known as: dislocated shoulder.

When the upper arm bone detaches from the shoulder blade at the socket where the two bones come together, this is known as a shoulder dislocation. The shoulder is the most mobile joint in the body, and this dislocation occurs frequently.
