What are joint dislocations, and how are they treated?
A joint dislocation occurs when one or more of the bones within a joint is pushed forcefully out of its correct anatomical position and is common in the shoulder, elbow, hip, or knee.
Most joint dislocations are caused by either an accident or a direct blow to the joint.
It is important to seek immediate medical attention after a dislocation occurs as other trauma to the joint, ligaments, or soft tissue may also have occurred.
Attempting to relocate the joint yourself is dangerous and should not be attempted.
If you have a joint dislocation the symptoms can include:
The Board Certified Orthopedic and Sports Medicine Specialists at OrthoNeuro have helped thousands of patients with joint dislocations return to an active and healthy lifestyle using a variety of treatment options.
Almost all joint dislocations do not require surgery but do require the joint to be placed back into the correct position (reduction).
At OrthoNeuro, our specialists will use gentle maneuvers to place the joint back into the correct position as well as examine if any tendon, ligament, or tissue damage has occurred.
Physical therapy may also be required to strengthen the joint.
If you have been experiencing symptoms of joint dislocation, schedule an appointment with one of our Board Certified Orthopedic and Sports Medicine Specialists at one of our 7 convenient locations throughout Greater Columbus.
