Dislocation

Dislocation is an injury to a joint of the body whereby the bones that come together to construct the joint are forced out of their normal positions.  Such injuries may cause sudden and intense pain and immobilise and deform the injured joint.  With prompt medical attention the bones can be repositioned and recovery is often complete within weeks.  However in some cases of dislocation (eg. shoulder dislocation) there is an increased risk of repeated dislocation, even after a full recovery.

Dupuytren’s contracture

Dupuytren's contracture is a rare hand abnormality in which the connective tissue under the skin of your palm contracts and toughens over time. Knots of tissue form below the skin, in time forming a thick cord that can pull one or additional fingers into a bent position. When this occurs, the fingers affected by Dupuytren's contracture bend normally but they cannot be straightened entirely. This makes it difficult to use the hand. Dupuytren's contracture can give problems in everyday activities. Dupuytren's contracture is seldom painful. Occasionally the bumps of tissue on your palm can be sensitive to touch. There are diverse treatments in order to slow the progression of Dupuytren's contracture. The therapies recommended with reference to Dupuytren's contracture relieve your symptoms.
