Shoulder feeling out of place

Curious if any one else have this problem as well. I injured my shoulder wrestling my brother when I was a kid and didn't get immediate treatment because I was scared. I guess I dislocated it because I couldn't move but after a couple of hours I got some mobility back but it felt out of place.

I eventually saw a doc about it and did a couple months of PT. The doc only saw some fluid build-up and said I'll need a shoulder scope to investigate further. I think I only got a x-ray. Maybe a MRI would have showed something different.

I kind of got used to it all of these years since I've strengthened it with PT. But it kind of messes with my head. It's only really noticeable when I'm shirtless. I guess I've developed like a tick, because I can't help but shrug my shoulder up so it doesn't feel out of place.

Is this something that a surgery can even fix? At the same time, I also don't want to potentially weaken my shoulder due to a surgery. But if there's a safe option I would consider it because it's a nagging issue that's always on my mind but obviously not always intensely. Nonetheless, it's taking up mental energy.

Nobody is perfectly sysmetrical. But when I see a person carrying one shoulder higher then the other I often find they have had past injuries. I think it is often the bodies own way of trying to protect it from being injured again. I have had dislocations and seperations in my shoulders and they never really feel inplace. But if it doesn't affect you then don't dwell on it as it wont help.

don’t wait any longer to get it fixed which ever way that my be. waiting too long can lead to worse conditions. my shoulder moves out of socket too. don’t let it get worst.


i had the same type issue. Got hit during a football game when I was about 17 never felt right ever since then eventually it grinded down the bone and socket. now i need a new shoulder.

i hate to keep posting pics of my injures but it’s important to know how waiting can make things much worse




a normal shoulder pic so you get an idea of the difference

Sounds like a shoulder separation, more common than you think, especially in sports like football and rugby. Mine actually lines up better after I hurt it a second time, lol.

See a PMR specialist to get an accurate diagnosis, don't guess with this sort of thing

My friend is a orthopedist,He says there are many people who have sprains or dislocated joints.The severity is different. You'd better check it out again,do a more detailed examination,and decide what to do according to the actual situation.

Wow, looks like it is about bone on bone now and the head of the humerus instead of being nice and smooth is all bumpy. How long did it take to get like that, how many years?

Definitely get an MRI because an x-ray cannot see ligaments and tendons. I'm not a doctor but it sounds like a labrum tear. Labrums do not heal because cartilage doesn't regenerate, but you can strengthen the muscles surrounding to keep in place. See a chiro or an ortho and research as much as possible.

from 1997-2014. when I went to doc about 6 years ago for an x-ray it wasn’t that bad but it got a lot worse starting five years ago. back then six years ago, the doctor said I only would only need a partial shoulder replacement if it gets to the point where I can’t deal with the pain anymore. it got so bad I need a full shoulder replacement now. it really progressed in the last five or six years, but it’s seems to be staying about the same now. hurts like hell and I lost a lot of motion in my arm. it also gets dislocated and moves around in the socket a lot. I have to move my arm to get it back in place about three or four times a day. moral of the story is get your shit looked at and fixed soon as you can.

What type of surgery would they have done if you caught it earlier?
I felt my shoulder dislocate once after my initial injury which is when I finally went to see a doc. After doing only PT, it's been fine, except for feeling out of place. I can do all of the typical presses (flat, shoulder, etc). But it's this out of place feeling that I can't shake, like I wouldn't be able to hit a front lat or MM and know it's symmetrical without a mirror.

It's like my sensory receptors around my left trap/rhomboid to rear delt area has shifted. Typically with the rest of my body if I mirror and touch either side of my body it'll feel about the same (i.e left vs. right bicep) except for my bad shoulder.

Looks like I'll have to go see my doc about it in case it can become a bigger problem. Maybe I've been able to get away with it since I haven't lifted heavy in a few years due to my back problems.
