Here is a quick video on the Whistler technique for hip relocation. Its quick and easy and really doesn’t allow you to hurt yourself. You use your legs to give you the traction. Just watch and see. Try it for yourself.

I call it the under-over technique: I put my arm UNDER the knee of the affected side and rest my hand OVER the good knee. I will use this a fulcrum. Both ankles are stabilised and all I do is straighten MY legs and lift up, putting traction on the dislocated hip.
