The joints themselves aren’t attached to anything that would break or rip, hence they can be dislocated and then put back in place without anything ripping or breaking

I’ve been dissecting a cadaver and it’s always weird how things just stay together, and how they don’t just fall apart when someone deadlifting a bunch of weight

There is damage. There are structures in place which are meant to secure the joint in place so dislocation doesn’t happen. Dislocations can damage these structures and increase the chances of further dislocations in the future… this is how you end up with people with routinary shoulder dislocations and such.

Most joints are held in place with sinews and muscles. These strech like rubber bands. And like rubber bands, overstreching causes damage.
