Word! Dislocation


Say: dis-lo-kay-shun

We all have places on our bodies that bend, like elbows and knees. These bendable places are called joints. When a bone gets pulled out of its joint from a fall or some other accident, it's called a dislocation. To fix it, a doctor has to put the bone back into the joint and let it heal.
