How common is it to feel a joint pop out of it's socket?

Asked by live_rose (1223points) April 27th, 2009

I’ve had knees fall out of place and ‘d just have to wait till I felt them pop back and recently when moving my arm my shoulder felt like it poped out and i could hear something tear. I popped it back but it was sore for the next day. Am I wrong in thinking they popped out/ is it something else? And does this happen to other people?

The tearing is upsetting.

I doubt they’re actually dislocating, but it’s probably kind of not good on your joints.

Do you mean like dislocated? Because from past experience a dislocated shoulder hurts like a bitch and it was incapacitated for at least a week – two weeks

@joeysefika @asmonet I doubt it was dislocating it maybe Im locking my joints? Im not sure they just feel out of places sometimes I hear a tear (maybe Im just imagining it) and then I wait till i feel like I can slide it back into place
