When can an athlete return to sports following a dislocated shoulder?
Requested by Age2B visitor

Most football players who dislocate their shoulder for the first time can usually return to play within six weeks after the injury once they reestablish full range of shoulder motion and strength. They must be able to perform all the actions necessitated by their position prior to returning to play. Those players who undergo surgery often require five to six months of rehabilitation before they are able to resume contact and collision sports.
