Rehabilitation

Hope of seeing improvement?

Question:

I dislocated my right shoulder in `98. My deltoid completely disappeared leaving a bony looking shoulder. When I flex the shoulder i can see slight movement in the muscles. With working out is there any hope of seeing some improvment

Answer:

There is always a chance that you did more than a simple dislocation, but most dislocations can regain strength and muscle bulk with proper exercise.
