If a reduction is needed, medication is given to make the person comfortable during the maneuver.</p> <h3>Keep in Mind</h3> <p>A shoulder immobilizer or sling is usually worn for a few weeks. After the immobilizer is taken off, <a href="https://kidshealth.org/ws/RadyChildrens/en/parents/phys-therapy.html/">physical therapy</a> is generally needed to improve shoulder strength and motion. Usually, people return to most normal activities within a couple of months, although a return to full sports participation can take longer.</p> <p><em>All A to Z dictionary entries are regularly reviewed by KidsHealth medical experts.</em></p>
