    Ask the person to relax and let his muscles remain loose. Inform him that you will perform maneuvers on his shoulder and let the him know you will stop if there is any pain.
    Step 4
    Bend the affected side's elbow to 90 degrees. Grip the the elbow with both hands and apply a traction away from the individual.
    Step 5
    Take one hand off the elbow and place it on the forearm. Slowly externally rotate the elbow and stop if the individual feels pain. Continue to maintain traction on the elbow with your other hand. Allow the patient to relax and repeat step 4.
    Step 6
    Listen for a popping sound and feel the shoulder. You will feel the ball of the humerus back in its socket (glenoid). If this method does not work, you can try manipulating the shoulder blade using the scapular manipulation technique.
