An orthopaedist is consulted for joint dislocation treatment which is caused when one or two bones slip out or are knocked out of a joint. This is normally caused by an impact or a sudden blunt force to a joint. The symptoms of shoulder dislocation or any type of dislocation can be confused with a broken bone because of the acute pain. People can dislocate any joint in the body like hip, ankle, knee and shoulder, joint dislocation is a medical emergency and a doctor should be consulted immediately. If the condition remains untreated then there is a chance of damage of the ligament, blood vessels or nerves. Anyone can face a dislocation if they experience sudden trauma, or meet with an accident. Elderly people are at a higher risk of dislocation as they lack mobility and are more likely to fall. Children should never remain unsupervised in a playground, because this is one of the most likely places where children meet with accidents. Some of the common dislocated shoulder symptoms include acute pain, swelling, bruise, a deformed shoulder bone along with incapability to move joint. An orthopaedist will determine the course of treatment on the severity of the condition. If joints do not return to its original place naturally, doctors may prescribe repositioning or manipulation where patients will be given sedatives to anaesthesia to relax the muscles near the joint. The doctor can also ask the patient to wear a sling, cast or splint for a few weeks to immobilize the joint, so that the area can heal properly. Medicines will be given to the patients to ease the pain and rehabilitation starts after the joint is repositioned, the rehabilitation program is designed to rebuilt the joint's strength and restore its motion. The healing process will be pretty smooth if there is no damage of blood vessels and nerves.
