Ive injured mine lots!! It takes a while just don't re injure it again and you'll most likely be fine. They take a few weeks at the min to stop hurting. I dislocated my left a few years ago and its fine now. Surgery will wreck it unless its totally fucked. Physio is stupid also. You just take it easy and ski but don't do anything to aggressive that if you wipe out you'll hurt it again. Take it out of the sling and keep it moving only to the point wear it doesn't hurt. For a week it will be stiff. But you'll notice it getting better after that. The hard thing is finding a good sleep position!!! Once you find that it will help also.
I tore my rotator verified 3 separate times verified by MRI. The doc and specialist wanted to do surgery Of course I didn't. there fine now!!!! The only time I notice a little weakness is when bench pressing. Other than that all is good. Physical Therapy doesn't do anything you can do at home!!!!!!!!!!!!! Keep it moving don't let it stiffen up thats what they will tell you. Time is what you need!!
Good advise thats what I was saying. if your shoulder was so hooped you need surgery it would be hanging like a wet noodle not on a ski forum!! If you can move it at all then chances are it will heal. the motions Mrf described are what they had me doing the first few times i went to physio. i went to the doctor many times with shoulder injuries. When I dislocated it wiping out at 60mph my shoulder joint was under my arm pit!! They had to put me out to get it back were it belonged. They said I would need surgery then also and after talking to a dozen or guys who had surgery they all said don't do it there shoulders never got better.
I was only saying what worked for me. believe me mine was fucked!! I never thought it would get better and after about 20 dislocations i started working out the shoulder slowly got better and better. As mentioned the most important thing is to not get it hurt again right now!! Starting with the exercise above then to weights once it feel a bit better. I'm 6ft 220 bench 350 used to bench 400 years ago. So I lost a little but still pretty Strong. it takes forever but it will heal.
As far as permanent damage goes thats already done! Surgery will only make it worse in most cases. Unless you have no mobility after a while. Then you might need surgery.
HaHa whats funny is you say my info is wrong yet you say the exact same thing??? WTF
Im saying as you said mine after the first dislocate would come out like yours sneezing or what ever. It came out at least 10 times doing up my shoes or waking up to it being dislocated etc.. To many times to count. You had surgury and its fine now Great!!! Im saying I didnt and mine was the same as yours and its Great. 98%
Ive talked to lots of guys who had surgery and lots who didnt with the same injury. Belive me I reserched the hell out of it!! Agree to disagree I guess. I was just trying to help buy letting the poor guy know that all is not lost and after a while he can re asses the injury and see who its healing. Arm hanging there was just a figure of speech I thought you would get that since your so cridical on what I said. Read between the lines more carfully then read your post before you hack at me. I ment well.
I figured if a doctor wasnt an option. Money is always a problem when ya have to pay for your visits and can be hard on a family. So I figured ya better be sure before ya take food off the table was my thinking if you must know!!
