Traumatic posterior glenohumeral joint (GHJ) dislocation is a rare condition which can be missed if it is not suspected. Clinical presentation may be subtle, but limitation in range of motion in patient with acute trauma should warrant obtaining a thorough history, performing a comprehensive physical examination, and acquiring at least a 3-view plain radiography. Reduction can be achieved with a direct pressure to the posterior aspect of the humeral head.
