Shoulder Dislocation

Risk Factors

Dislocated shoulders are most common in people between the ages of 18 and 25 because these people tend to have a high level of physical activity. Older adults also are more susceptible to shoulder dislocation because their joints and surrounding ligaments are weaker. In addition, older people tend to fall more frequently, which can increase their risk of a dislocated shoulder.
