New York Post - Dr. Bradford Parsons “Rangers’ Callahan to Miss 10-14 Days”

 – January 31, 2013 /Press Release/  –– 

Wednesday the Rangers announced that captain Ryan Callahan will be out 10-14 days after suffering a left shoulder subluxation as a result of a third-period fight with the Flyers’ Max Talbot in the Rangers’ 2-1 win on Tuesday. “What it means is that the shoulder joint, the ball in the socket, the ball slides part of the way out but doesn’t get stuck out,” said Dr. Brad Parsons, an orthopedic surgeon at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, who is a shoulder specialist but does not work with NHL players. “If it’s just a subluxation, the deep structures of the shoulder might have gotten stretched or strained — the ligaments and muscles, and that obviously causes pain. But usually a period of rest, two weeks or so, will allow the shoulder inflammation to resolve or get better.”
