Today, I was doing homework and I had my leg bent in a funny position. When I stood up, my hip dislocated. It was the most painful thing I've ever experienced. When people ask me what happened, I have to say I dislocated my hip doing calculus. FML

They don't X-ray when you dislocate something. Just pop it back in and continue on your way. You will be in a pain for a bit but that's because you just dislocated something. I've dislocated my knee 8 times

Not really. It depends on the type of the dislocation. Some will require an x-ray and some don't. Besides, some doctors will do it to make sure :)

#49 For sensitive areas such as the spine they will do a CT scan or an MRI (CT to check for dislocation/fracture & MRI if damage to nearby tissues other than the bone is suspected), however, an x-ray is usually done before going to such extremes.

#49 when I took a first aid course a few years back, I was told that you shouldn't pop a dislocated joint back in (unless you're a doctor, obviously) because you could trap nerves or tendons or whatever and cause even more damage.

trust me, you don't want to know. I dislocated my knee a few years ago and was too scared to go the doctor. I did get it popped in by this massage therapist in the end because I couldn't walk, and if i tried, my whole side would crack from my knee, up to my waist. It took about 4 months for it to finally get better, and even now it hurts when it's winter time and I can't sit criss cross style anymore. So be careful because dislocating anything hurts!
