Brief Answer:
Hyperpronation method.

Detailed Answer:
Hello dear, welcome to Ask a doctor service.
I read your query and here is my advice.

I understand that your humeroradial joint is dislocated.
A more simple method of relocation is to hold the elbow in 90° of flexion. Next, the wrist is firmly hyperpronated.
You will hear a 'click' sound when it is in its place

Hope I have answered the question.
Let me know if I can assist you further.

Sorry for not being clear, my joint is not dislocated. My goal is to find the joint between the radius and the humerus.

I can find diagrams online, but I can't find any steps to find it on a real life arm. On a real life arm, there is skin, muscle, etc on top of this joint.

Brief Answer:
Half of elbow joint, side of the thumb.

Detailed Answer:
OK then, radius is a bone in forearm and humerus is the arm bone and the joint is radiohumeral joint ( elbou).
Of course it is covered by muscle and skin.
In order to localise it just remember that radiuo humeral joint is the elbow joint, the half side of the thumb.

Sorry to be a bother, but I was wondering if there is any standard practice or tricks to make finding this joint easier?

I understood everything you've messaged me, I'm just curious.

For example, one person told me to do the following:
"It would be better if you get in contact with a physiotherapist or an MD.
Essentially, you press with index and thumb distally from the elbow and search for a small “hole” corresponding to the joint. "

Brief Answer:
Explained below

Detailed Answer:
OK exactly as I said and also as other doctor said, the distal part of elbow is the part of elbow, thumb side. There is a whole that corresponds to the joint.
If you still don't understand me tell me.
