I completely agree with what Emma says. Usually I can relocate a dislocation if I do it fairly quickly so that the surrounding tissues dont have much of a chance to swell. For me when I dislocate it hurts and hurts for days ........or weeks after like my shoulder on residential.
If I sublux they usually spring back or with the gentlest touch they go back to normal position, these dont tend to hurt me much but that may be due to the fact that it is a regular occurence and everything is stretched or something. The first time I subluxed fingers they did hurt, so maybe it doesnt then once it has done it a few times.
