Dislocations can occur in contact sports, such as football and hockey, and in sports in which falls are common, such as downhill skiing, gymnastics, and volleyball. Basketball players and football players also commonly dislocate joints in their fingers and hands by accidentally striking the ball, the ground, or another player. A hard blow to a joint during a motor vehicle accident and landing on an outstretched arm during a fall are other common causes.
