Can subluxed shoulder worsen the recovery of flaccid stage???

Answer from stroke-rehab.com: Subluxation usually occurs with flaccidity and is due to the weakness of the muscles. Obviously it would be better if subluxation could be prevented, however, I have seen patients with subluxation go on to have a good recovery. I have also seen others with subluxation have pain and poor recovery. I tried to find research that used subluxation as a predictor of recovery of the arm, but I did not find anything after a quick search. You could perform a more extensive search to get an evidenced based answer as I am only answering based on my experience with stroke patients. Research has shown that if the arm stays flaccid and impaired over the first month with little improvement that the outcomes are less favorable.
