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.
