    Hey!

    Once again I dislocated my shoulder and had to go to hospital with it.
    Sure it has been goin in/out a coupple of times but has been put to right by it self.

    My question is - what good exercises should be done to limit it to happend again.
    I know once dislocated allways possible to do again easier, and the doc wants me to do a surgery if results are bad after I've seen the shoulder specialist.

    Thanks in Advance!

    Hey,

    I know how you are feeling. I have discloctated both shoulders (Left three times & right once) playing football and cricket. Not fun at all :nono:

    Do you play any sports? What instances does the shoulder disclocate? Because once it 'pops' the chance for further disclocations or sublaxations increase dramatically. This is due to stretching of the ligaments (rotator cuff), and more than likely a torn labrum. As a result, the shoulder capsule is not as effective at stabilising the shoulder.

    I had surgery (Full shoulder reconstruction) about 6 months ago, and I am yet to bench press over 5kg. It's a very slow process, that involves a lot of stretching and strengthening (Low weight / High Reps).

    Exercises:

    Internal Rotation w/ thera band

    External Rotation w/ thera band

    90 degree Internal Rotation w/ thera band

    90 degree External Rotation w/ thera band

    Light upper body movements (D/B bench, D/B press, One arm rows, Seated rows, & shurgs). They are just some of the exercises that I am doing as part of rehabilitation.

    Here is a couple of links...

    I personally wouldnt use DB's until I feel up to it.

    I'd use machines at first...

    Well, used to paly icehockey and soccer.
    But nothing serious today more than lifting from time to time.
    Last time it 'popped' out when I was doing chest exr, 3yrs ago.
    then a couple of times when doing nothin special, like stretching, to pop in by it self.

    One wierd situation it popped out was when I was sleeping, woke up with a anoying pain and noticed the shoulder to be dislocated, once again to pop in by it self.

    Going to see a specialist on tuesday, most likly she will just give some exrecises and tell me to come back in a month and see how the shoulder is feeling... :)

    Will check in to the ones you gave, but will start with machines first.

    Thanks guys!
