According to that link the poor woman suffered a dislocated shoulder, not really a serious life threatening injury, but very painful indeed, as our daughter found out during the winter of 2010/2011 :cry

Its mostly caused by putting an arm out in front of oneself to help break a fall, rather than landing flat on your face. Its normally a hospital job with strong pain relief drugs whilst the sholder is reduced back into its socket, but for some people, our daughter included, theres too much damage been caused by the injury to the ligaments around the joint, and the dislocation then repetes itself very easily with normal daily activities such as carrying a shopping bag, or even twisting over during sleep, and when this happens, the only way to treat for a more perminent cure it is with surgery as a day case, followed by a few weeks of physiotherapy.

I hope the lady makes a speedy recovery :teddy:
