What causes dislocations?

Dislocations occur when the bones in a joint are forced out of position, typically due to a fall or sudden impact (such as those sustained in contact sports). Any joint in the body can become dislocated, including those in the jaw, shoulders, elbows, fingers, hips, knees, ankles, and toes.

What are the symptoms of a dislocation?

A dislocation will cause intense pain in the area of the injury, and may even make it impossible to move the affected joint. Symptoms of a dislocation may also include:

  • Bruising
  • Swelling
  • Visible deformity

How are dislocations treated?

Dislocations are an emergency and require immediate medical attention. Treatment will depend on the location and severity of the dislocation, but doctors often treat dislocations using a closed reduction procedure, which involves gently easing the bones back into place. Treatment for dislocations may also involve:

  • Gentle exercise
  • Heat/cold therapy
  • Pain medication
  • Immobilization (using a sling or splint)
  • Periodic rest
  • Rehabilitation

In some severe cases, surgery might be needed to realign the affected bones or to tighten the nearby ligaments and tendons. Unfortunately, once a joint is dislocated, it’s often more likely to dislocate again in the future, so it’s important to exercise caution moving forward.

I truly wish I could give them more than just 5 stars!

"I couldn’t have asked for better care for my son than from the staff at Tahoe Fracture and Orthopedic. From the receptionist all the way up to the surgeon, we were treated with the utmost respect, kindness, patience, and care. They were not only quick to get him in for an examination, but were amazingly quick to fit him into the schedule to have his injury treated asap!! Thanks to them, my son is now on the road to recovery. I truly wish I could give them more than just five stars!"

Thanks Doc!

"Dr. Mike Fry is a wonderful doctor and caring person. When I saw him for the first time, he held my hand and said, “I’m going to make you well”, and he did! I had back surgery 2.5 years ago and still doing great. Thanks Doc!"

We were deeply impressed with the entire experience.

"We were deeply impressed with the entire experience. Candace should be commended for her work ethic. Also my experience with the x-ray tech was outstanding. I would not change anything."

Dr. Fry and the entire staff were excellent.

"My entire experience was just as good as I had planned…a great day! Dr. Fry and the entire staff were excellent. Thanks a lot!"
