Added information based on my own experience, and images of my own hand. I hate learning this way! Russell 22:01, 11 September 2005 (UTC)
- Owch, that looks painful...
i have had a dislocation in my shoulder. I heard that if a joint is dislocated, after it heals it can easily be dislocated again. Is that true?
- Yes, there will be a tendency towards easier dislocation, therefore surgical reparation of the damaged joint capsule and ligaments may be necessary. Rehabilitation from a Physical Therapist is the usual treatment. -- Fyslee 10:16, 31 October 2006 (UTC)
First off, i would like to thank you for your quick and informative answer, but i would like to add something : taking into consideration that it was a partial dislocation, and that I am still sixteen years old, is a Physical Therapist and surgical reparation still necessary?
- I would recommend seeing a Physical Therapist. If they give you therapy, they may be able to strengthen the muscles around the joint to prevent any new problems. Also, they can see about range of motion and any other problems. That's what I did, although the damage was done by multiple dislocations. MrPsychic 03:31, 22 June 2007 (UTC)
surgery or not
i have had a dislocation in the same shoulder twice. I want to know about the side effects of a surgery and is it reccommended or is strengthening the organs around the dislocated shoulder suffiecent? —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 18.104.22.168 (talk) 20:20, 25 April 2007 (UTC).
- Dislocated Shoulder This article may be of some help, it does have several good links. If you have any other questions, ask the surgeon about it, or your physical therapist.
Adding Information about Patellar Dislocations
I'm thinking of adding some facts about the epidemiology of patellar dislocations, I will not change any information that is already there. I'm going to use an article about the incidence of acute traumatic patellar dislocation with members of the US military. Wendykayo (talk) 03:43, 6 December 2016 (UTC)
Epidemiology of Finger Dislocations
I am adding a section about the epidemiology of finger dislocations, I will not change already existing information. I am using a ystematic review about the Epidemiology of Finger Dislocations Presenting for Emergency Care Within the United States. Wardam (talk) 03:50, 6 December 2016 (UTC)
Adding to Epidemiology Section: Hip Dislocations
I am planning to add some more epidemiology about anterior and posterior Jensenbh (talk) 03:54, 6 December 2016 (UTC)hip dislocations. I will use my information from an article from the Clinical Key Database. Jensenbh (talk) 03:54, 6 December 2016 (UTC)
