Dislocation is when some kind of force causes one of the joints out of their normal range of movement. As a result, it should come as no surprise to learn that the fingers and the shoulders are the most common joints to be dislocated, though the elbows, hips, and knees are also particularly susceptible to the same problem. Such injuries tend to be not just extremely painful but also immovable both because of the pain and because of the physical injury. However, it should be noted that so long as the victim can get a medical professional to move their joint back into proper position, they should be able to recover so long as they get sufficient time for rest and recovery. Even then, there is evidence that they will encounter further issues, with examples including but not limited to a higher chance of future dislocations, lasting damage to the soft tissues surrounding the joint, and even an increase chance of developing some kind of arthritis by the time they age.
