A shoulder dislocation occurs when the top of your humerus bone moves out of its socket, or shoulder joint. It is accompanied by severe pain, lack of motion, and a bump either in front or in the back of your shoulder. Almost all shoulder dislocations are related to trauma, and most seem to occur in young adults.
If you hear that click and pop from your knee when you get up from a chair, it could be one of the signs that it is time for a knee replacement. If your activities are limited and the pain keeps you from enjoying life, it could be time to speak to Dr. Camille Clinton about knee replacement surgery.
Our shoulders are one of the most complex joints in our body. For that reason they can be quite susceptible to injury and inflammation.
Do you hear a creak when you get up from a chair? Is it becoming more difficult to kneel down to do your gardening? If so, you know what “old man time” can do to your knees.

A torn ACL used to be a “game changer.” Forgive the pun, but now even you can maintain your lifestyle afterwards! But, exactly how do you know if you tore your ACL?
It is absolutely natural for your joints to take on some wear and tear over the years, but many individuals exacerbate this process with activities that can be hard on their joints.
The shoulder is the most mobile joint in our body. It allows movement backward and forward, around in a circle, and it enables the arm to move up and away from the body.
Every surgery has its risks, and total knee replacement surgery is certainly no different.
