handy website: shoulderdislocation.net

30 Oct

the shoulderdislocation.net site has some nice anatomy pics and some pics/videos of a handful of reduction techniques (scapular manipulation, Cunningham, etc). 

Check it out, some useful tips and refreshers for your next reduction!

 

ONE PARTICULARLY HANDY TIP (from the site):

tell the patient to shrug their shoulders, chest out.

brings the scapulae together, better position (like in scapular manipulation) for the shoulder to reduce
