Sometimes.: If you have had only one dislocation, rehab is probably the way to go. If you have recurrent dislocations, then you should consider surgery. In most cases, if the initial dislocation is the result of a trauma, like a collision on the soccer field, the knee cap won't come out again. If it came out without any trauma, say you just turned around and it popped out, your risk is higher.

No.: Carpal tunnel causes symptoms in your hand and wrist primarily. In some cases the pain may radiate into the forearm, but an inability to move your arm would not be expected.

See a doctor.: If you feel a mass in your armpit you need to see a doctor, sooner rather than later.
