In brief: Pain, deformity
These are usually obvious injuries with pain, deformity (depends on the location/direction of the dislocation, weakness, guarding (won't or can't use the arm) and occasionally numbness or vascular insufficiency.
These are best treated promptly by a trained orthopedic surgeon, er physician or trauma surgeon.
