What’s the best treatment of a dislocated hip?

A hip dislocation is a medical emergency that requires immediate attention. Without this, you're taking a big risk with your health, which could result in additional damage and more trouble in the future.

Your medical team will order a variety of tests, such as an X-ray, to get a clear view of what's going on. Once they know the extent of the injury and the position of the dislocation, it's easier for doctors to make a final call on treatment.

While not always the case, a reduction is the most common way to treat a hip dislocation. This is the act of moving the bones back into position, often with the help of a sedative or local anesthesia.

If reduction doesn't work or complications like a nerve injury occur, surgery may be required.

Even if reduction is successful, it typically takes two to three months to completely heal from a dislocation. Even then, most people require rehabilitation to strengthen the area and lessen the likelihood of recurring injury in the future.

A hip dislocation is a painful injury that won't heal on its own. If you suffer this injury on the job, such as if you were hit with a heavy object on a construction site, you should immediately call for help. Also, report the incident to your employer.

Once your medical team provides additional information on the injury, you will have a clear understanding of what comes next. If you're unable to return to work, which is probably the case, you'll want to file a claim for workers' compensation benefits. An attorney who has experience with these claims can help you
