Hippocratic dislocation of shoulder

Hippocratic dislocation of shoulder

The Hippocratic method is performed with the patient lying in supine position. The practitioner holds the affected limb by the forearm and hand of the patient. The practitioner then places his heel in the axilla of the patient, acting as a fulcrum while the arm of the patient is adducted. This initiates the reduction.
