What causes of Dislocations?
The nature and severity of your injury, as well as other circumstances, will influence your treatment approach. It may consist of:
Manually repositioning a displaced bone in its junction
A sling or splint is used to keep a dislocated joint immobilized.
A cast or brace is used to keep a broken bone in place while it heals.
After a dislocation, surgery to relocate and stabilize shattered bones or to mend torn ligaments is performed.
Once you’ve healed, you’ll need orthopedic rehabilitation to regain muscle strength and joint range of motion.
