Dislocation

A joint is the place where your bones come together. Normally, bones glide smoothly within your joints, allowing a wide range of motion. But a bone can be pushed or pulled out of position. This is known as a dislocation.

Dislocation prevents normal joint movement and can be very painful. Prompt treatment is crucial. Dislocations can happen to almost any joint. But they're most common in the shoulder, knee, elbow, and finger. Many dislocations result from trauma, such as a blow or fall. But some can happen during normal activities. A shoulder can dislocate during the act of throwing a ball.
