Dislocation: Causes, Symptoms. Treatment

Dislocation

A dislocation occurs if a joint is moved in an unsuitable direction. If a sudden force is exerted on the joint, it is possible for the joint surfaces to move against each other. You have a dislocation if the joints remain in this abnormal position. A dislocated joint often causes the joint capsule and the ligament to tear.

Symptoms of a Dislocation

Signs of a dislocation are inability to move the joint and swelling. Shoulder dislocations are common but other joints that also get dislocated include knees, elbows and fingers.

Treatment

If the joint is dislocated it should not be moved. The joint may only be put back into place by a doctor. The joint must be rested for about 8 days after the joint is back in place. Afterwards a range of movement exercises are done to help restore the strength of the joint. It is possible that also ligaments, tendons and bones are damaged.
