Often hip disclocations are terrible injuries. Often they will occur because of a traumatic event such as a car or a truck crash; a huge collision where the impact is so severe the bones in the hip area get out of joint.
It’s imperative that you get the proper treatment; generally you need a specialist such as an orthopedic specialist.
The worst thing about hip dislocations is once they are put back in place you could have long-term effects. You may have arthritis in that area, you could have pain in that area or other complications which I describe in this video.
More details about hip locations are found on the Medscape website.
Possible complications can include nerve damage. The sciatic nerve sits close to the hip joint and is damaged in 20 percent of all hip dislocations.
