In this 4G-paced lifestyle, we are always in a rush to get somewhere, to leave from somewhere, or to not miss out on something amazing, we think is there on the other side. We never slow down, really. We’ve forgotten to put ourselves on top of our priorities. The consequences to such hastening? We end up hurting ourselves. Out of sheer clumsiness or running late, we often stumble upon joint dislocations. A dislocation usually occurs when a bone slips out of a joint.

Dislocating a joint plainly means that your bone is no longer where it was supposed to be. This is your body’s way of telling you to slow down a bit.

Children and older people are at a greater risk to face dislocations, especially if they lack mobility or are less able to prevent falls. The common symptoms are-
