: im at the hospital right now with my 12 year old brother and cousin cuz they have a friend in the hospital. i have a problem with my shoulder. this is the 5th time since august it has dislocated. i dont know how to put it back in. nobody will teach me how to either because they think i will have too much fun with it and dislocate my shoulder on purpose so i can pop it back in.
anyway, there was only one time i actually went to the hospital for my shoulder and i had to wait a bit then they took me in and did xrays and gave me an IV and i was there for hours. i really dont want to do that now. i want to be here for the friend. we are in the waiting room waiting for him to get outof surgery. but i was wondering if i told one of the doctors or nurses i dislocated my shoulder, could one of them just pop it back in for me? or would i have to wait for one doctor or nurse to have a free minute or would they make me go into a room, ask me questions, feel it, take xrays, etc?
and also, would they teach me how to pop it in myself or are they supposed to encourage people to go to the hospital for dislocations? also, would i be billed or would they just pop it back in for free?

: You would have to register into the ER room as a patient. They will probably show you how to take care of the problem if it were to happen again and yes you will be billed. Doctors don't work for free, unfortunately. And nurses are much too busy with work.

: Seldom are you going to find them doing anything for free. Policy you know. Your shoulder isn't actually popping out of place, it's being pulled out of place by tight muscles in your back. The pressure is so great from that tightness that it finally does pop the shoulder out of place. To get relief from this you have to free up your back muscles to get the pressure off the muscles causing this to happen and here's how to free them up for your relief:
(do while sitting)
Place your left hand on your left leg next to your body. Place your right hand over your left shoulder, fingers over the back and the palm in the front and firmly pull down on them and hold. After 30 seconds slowly lower your body forward and to the outside of your left leg, keeping your left arm fairly straight as you do. When you reach your lap remain there for another 10 seconds, release the pressure but rest there for another 30 seconds. Then reverse your hand positions and do your right side.
For best results relax your body first by taking a deep breath and exhaling then remain this relaxed. This should let it glide back into place but if it doesn't you may need the assistance of the dr. again. But it should be the last time you would need it once you free them up.

: John Torres is absolutely correct ! No faking of ailments...The whole ER team has seen it ALL, in all shapes and sizes. Billed yes, x-ray, yes, if a car accident or two happened to come in while you were there, those two would become the priority, and the wait could be lengthy. Also, you are under observation, any time you are in the ER room. The whole gambit of paper work must ensue, the old paper trail....So just a few tips for you...Waiting around is no fun, but if it means relief in the end, then it is your choice. Take Care.
