1. NEVER attempt to reduce the shoulder on the field.
2. NEVER attempt to reduce the shoulder with shoulder pads on.
3. A hospital gurney or other mushy surface makes reduction more difficult. A typical A.T. table is perfect.
4. Avoid reducing the shoulder in the seated position, fainting is possible & would complicate the matter.
5. Use the Mich technique. It is gentle, painless & effective. No thrusting or torquing is involved.
