User avatar Hi!

Firstly we need to confirm if what you are having is in fact a dislocation. You will have to consult an orthopedician for that.

hi, it is costly to see a orthopedician here. furthermore i think if it is dislocation i won't be able to move at all or it will always be aching. my aching experience with my arm only occur when i try to do pull up and it only happen occasionally.

i also want to know if it is muscle injury, would it ever to be cured?
