The place where two or more bones meet is known as a joint. If there is an abnormal separation of the joint, then it is known as a joint dislocation. Dislocation causes are often by sudden trauma on the joint, like an impact or a fall. A joint dislocation can cause damage to the surrounding ligaments, tendons, muscles, and nerves. An Orthopedic should be immediately consulted in case of a dislocation and the appropriate Joint Dislocation Treatment has to be started. X-rays are the first step to identify the type of dislocation and sometimes an MRI would also be suggested by the orthopedic. Once a diagnosis is confirmed, the joint has to be manipulated back into position quickly and effectively. In some cases, if the joint dislocation is mild, then a simple compression, ice and elevation are all that is needed to take care of this. However in case the dislocation is elaborate, then various diagnostic treatments are suggested. This can be a very painful process, therefore this is typically done either in the emergency department under sedation or in an operating room under a general anesthetic. It is also important that the joint is set as early as possible as in such states, the blood supply is cut and if untreated can lead to permanent disfiguration. The healing time depends on the nature of the injury and almost in all cases once the joint is set, a round of physiotherapy exercises follow for the complete recovery to set in.
