Effective treatment for dislocations

There are many causes of dislocations

A dislocation is a very common injury that often happens due to some type of accident or trauma. It is caused by the bones in a joint being forced out of their normal position, typically due to an excessive amount of force coming from one direction. Causes can include something as simple as tripping on stairs or slipping on ice, to more extreme activities like contact sports or motor vehicle accidents. In some cases, such as with repetitive stress injuries, even simplest of tasks like typing can be a factor in causing a dislocation.

A dislocation is an injury to a joint where the ends of two bones have come out of their normal alignment. This can occur in any joint throughout the body, but most commonly affects the shoulder, elbow, and knee. Dislocations can happen due to trauma or repetitive overuse activities such as athletics, and can be very painful. There may be swelling, loss of muscle function, and extreme tenderness at the site of injury.

Common symptoms of a dislocation include an obvious deformity or misalignment of the joint, intense pain that increases when pressure is applied, swelling and redness around the affected area, numbness and tingling around it, restricted movement in the joint and sensations of grinding or clicking when trying to move the affected area. If you have any combination of these symptoms after an injury, it’s important to seek medical attention immediately. It is possible for a dislocated bone to cause further damage if not treated quickly and adequately.

Treatment for a dislocation typically involves immobilizing the affected joint, taking pain medication, and visiting chiropractors or physiotherapists who specialize in movement and injury rehabilitation. A chiropractor can use manipulation to realign joints that have been displaced by a dislocation. An experienced physical therapist can help with strength and flexibility exercises that can facilitate healing as well as plans for safe re-entry into activities. Massage therapy is also recommended which will help reduce muscle spasms, improve range of motion and circulation, and promote relaxation. Working with a chiropractor or physiotherapist assists the body in proper healing from an injury like a dislocation.

I cannot recommend Dr. Shannon Webster and Dr. Michael Torreiter enough. Both are super friendly and understanding and it has been an absolute pleasure to have met them and been treated by them.

I have been receiving treatment from Dr. Webster for a few months and I've been feeling much better. I had sever knee, shoulder and back pain. I couldn't squat or do push ups without my joints screaming at me. But now I'm not able to only do all those but also feel stronger. The most important piece is that she listened and took my history of many injuries into consideration. And as a dancer, I couldn't have asked for a better chiropractor who not only helped me feel better but also understood my needs.

I also brought my grandmother to Dr. Torreiter for her back pain for acupuncture. He was extremely kind, understanding, compassionate and everything that I could ask for. He made her feel comfortable and explained every step during each treatment. He made sure that she was well taken care of and also made other important referrals that lead to her recovery.

So far I have referred my whole family to these two wonderful individuals and everyone's experience has been equally great. Thanks to them we all are doing much better!
