  • Dislocations and Sprains
    Articulated joints keep their stability thanks to the muscles, tendons and ligaments. If the articular joints, usually because of a sudden trauma, lose their correlation, or exceed the limits of their extension, the joint will undergo DISLOCATION if the loss is permanent in time or a SPRAIN, if the loss is momentary (it could be for tenths of a second, but enough to cause damage).
