A dislocation occurs when extreme force is put on a ligament, allowing the ends of two connected bones to separate.
Dislocated joint treatment
All dislocations require immediate medical attention because fractures can also occur with dislocations.
Some joint dislocations may go back into place by themselves. However, for those dislocations that do not go back into place, you will need treatment to place the joint back into its proper position so it will heal.
Treatment plans for patients with a dislocated joint will be determined by their care team based on age, medical history, type and stage of dislocation and personal preferences.
Dislocated joint treatment options may include:
- R.I.C.E. (rest, ice, compression and elevation)
- Splint or cast
- Pain management
Elbow and shoulder
Tennis elbow, bone spurs and rotator cuff issues are some common upper extremity conditions impacting active and sedentary lives.
Conservative treatment, like sports therapy, may not alleviate elbow or shoulder pain long-term.
When that happens, Baylor Scott & White Health not only offers a full array of orthopedic surgery procedures to correct conditions of the upper extremities, but we also features procedures that are not widely available, such as reverse total shoulder replacement, revision shoulder surgery and revision shoulder replacement—often through current, minimally invasive techniques.

Whether you or a loved one experience knee pain, hip pain or pain in a shoulder or ankle joint, with advances in technology and surgical procedures, you now have even more options for joint surgery. In addition to traditional approaches, Baylor Scott & White also offers several specialized procedures that help reduce joint replacement recovery time.
Joint wellness experts are able to treat your orthopedic joint pain from your shoulders to your ankles conservatively or, if necessary, by performing partial or total joint replacement surgery traditionally, through the anterior hip approach, one day post-operative discharges and even using robotic surgery*. We also offer total reverse shoulder replacement.
Sometimes knee replacement complications and other joint complications arise that require examination from a physician experienced in complex joints. If you’ve had a joint replaced but are experiencing knee pain, hip pain or instability, learn more about our complex joint revision services or search our orthopedic oncologists to make an appointment.
*Robotic joint replacement surgery is available at Baylor Scott & White Medical Center – Temple
