How could  i repair my shoulder from dislocations without surgery?

Not generally: In the past, we recommended a lot of physical therapy to improve the dynamic stability of shoulders. However, for patients that dislocate, strengthening does not help in containing the shoulder. Either the body is able to restore function and stability or not. Other options are rarely successful if there is persistent instability. ...Read more

Can a displace mensical root cause locking of the knee joint? What causes a knee joint to lock up? Unable to straighten the leg without extreme pain.

Yes: A torn meniscus can cause the knee to "lock" when the flap of meniscus that is torn gets pinched between the femur and tibia. This would be the most common reason for a knee joint to lock although sometimes a loose body which is a little piece of bone can do the same thing. See an orthopedist. ...Read more
