Reduction: Depends on the invovled joint. Reduction of the dislocated joint is an emergency. Seek medical or er advice. After reduction, the treatment options can varying based on the involved joint. These can range from immobilization to physical therapy to surgery. The goal is to minimize the risk of recurrence and regain near full joint function.

Yes: The official treatment is to reduce the joint by any means possible and to restore the function of that joint. Thanks.
