What are some immediate treatments for dislocated shoulders?
Requested by Age2B visitor

If you suspect you or a friend has dislocated their shoulder, it’s important to take steps to reduce further injury. First, try to immobilize the area with a sling, and never try to repeat the motion you think caused the dislocation. Grab some ice to help reduce the swelling around the joint. If the pain is too great, take a painkiller until you can get to a doctor or emergency room.
