Physiotherapy treatment for shoulder dislocation is one of the main methods of conservative therapy used by trauma doctors. Physiotherapy treatments can eliminate painful symptoms, restore joint function and avoid the need for surgery.

What does physiotherapy do?

A shoulder dislocation, resulting from a variety of causes, is accompanied by impaired motor function, severe pain and swelling (more information on the causes and symptoms of injury can be found on the CCTWM website). Physiotherapy can help to treat these symptoms. Physiotherapy combined with immobilisation of the injured limb will have the following beneficial effects:

  • stimulation of blood circulation and microcirculation
  • elimination of swelling;
  • Increase muscle tone;
  • Pain relief;
  • Removal of clotted blood from the haemorrhage;
  • prevention of the formation of contractures.

One of the main advantages of physiotherapy is its safety and versatility. The only contraindication to physiotherapy procedures after a shoulder dislocation is extensive haemorrhage in the area of the injured joint.

Physiotherapy treatment methods

After a shoulder dislocation, specialists prescribe

Ozone Therapy – allows you to restore the sensitivity and trophicity of tissue structures in the area of the affected joint, adjacent muscles and skin.

Electrophoresis is especially effective at initial stages of the therapeutic process. It eliminates swelling and painful sensations.

Autoplas Therapy – an innovative method that stimulates the outflow of lymphatic fluid and venous blood from the affected area. As a result the swelling is relieved, the development of stagnation and the formation of fibrous tissue is prevented.

Manual muscle testing is a therapeutic and preventive procedure, which enables a specialist to pinpoint problem areas and select the optimal therapy.

Laser, ultrasound and shockwave therapy are popular methods that eliminate local abnormalities and speed up regeneration processes.

Paraffin wraps – relieve pain and inhibit inflammation.

Massage – improves blood circulation and microcirculation, increases muscle tone and restores the normal range of motion of the shoulder joint.

Physiotherapy procedures such as micro electro stimulation, magnetotherapy, electrophoresis with medicines give very good results in dislocated shoulders.

Typically, in order to achieve the most rapid and pronounced therapeutic results, the patient is assigned a complex consisting of several procedures that are specifically tailored to him. The average course of physiotherapy for a dislocated shoulder takes about 1.5 months.

Study: Women Find It Easier To Fall In Love With Men Who Can Tell Stories

Scientists have once again proved what you already intuitively guessed.

Researchers from the University of Buffalo (USA) have conducted two studies to find out whether narrative ability (in other words, the ability to speak well) affects attractiveness to the opposite sex.

In the first experiment, participants were shown a number of pictures of people of the opposite sex. At the same time as they were shown the pictures, they were also given information about whether the person was a good narrator, where they were from, how old they were and whether they liked spaghetti. All the photos were divided into three parts: A “good storyteller” (this type was described using phrases such as “rich vocabulary”, “his stories at parties are always popular”, “always able to make people laugh”), an “average storyteller” (oratory skills were not specifically mentioned) and a “bad storyteller” (“often doesn’t talk at parties”, “sometimes he has trouble finding words to express his thoughts”).

Participants were then asked to rate photographs in terms of attractiveness for dating and sex, long-term relationships and as a friend. The result was that being a good story-teller made a man more attractive in a woman’s eyes when it came to long term relationships.

Men, on the other hand, don’t care at all. Their perceptions of a woman’s attractiveness were not affected by the quality of a talented storyteller.

In the second experiment, questions about attractiveness were added to the questions: “Who do you think has the qualities of a leader?”, “Who is admirable?”, “Who can lead?” As in the first case, women scored higher on good storytellers.

The explanation is evolutionary. Men spread their genes widely (at least they try to), while women are targeted. Also, men and women spend different amounts of effort on offspring: the former may be limited to sexual intercourse only, while women’s investment includes months of pregnancy and raising offspring. Thus, men can afford to take their choice of partner rather lightly, while women subconsciously look for someone who can help with the upbringing of offspring.

Scientists suggest that in primitive societies, the one who could explain supernatural phenomena automatically gained power and privileges. This is why women subconsciously believe that such a partner is more promising.

It looks like we will have to put aside our signature seduction trick – the meaningful sniffing.
