Выламывать суставы (насильственными средствами, пытками добиваться чего-л. от кого-л. прямом и переносном смыслах) to get smb. to do smth. by using violence or torture (literally and figuratively)) (https://dictionary.cambridge.org/dictionary/english/twist-someone-s-arm).

Alex, twist SOMEone's arm... "one's" means your own arm, and THAT would be hard to do.

This is actually quite a subtle (and often humorous) form of pressure, where a person keeps asking or hinting at something until they convince someone to give in and do something. It means more to TALK INTO than to FORCE. [wife]: What a week! Do you want to drive out to the country tomorrow and get away from the city? [husband]: Good idea! I'll pack up the car tonight. [wife]: ...and we can go look at that gorgeous table in the antique shop again? 😉 [husband]: You and that table! Ok, ok, you twisted my arm. Let's not look at it - let's buy it already! We'll call it an early Valentine's Day gift.

It’s incorrect. 100%. ONE’S always means собстенный... There’s all kinds of bullshit in dictionaries. You should find a reputable one and stick to it.

If you look at this last one, it says PERSUADE, not FORCE. I believe “force” is too strong for this collocation. So I agree with Collin’s definition, but not the ones that suggest force.

Another dictionary I like is vocabulary.com - they really explain the meanings of words and phrases in a way that’s consistent with the modern language.
