After joining up at d unit only a few months ago, i dislocated my shoulder throwing a ball for my dog on monday, i have previously dislocated the same shoulder once before 3 years ago so monday caught me by total surprise as i have had almost no issues with it. Naturally i am now really concerned about it happening again, and i was wondering if anyone has any exercises, advice for things to do when im looking to go back to the gym. I have been looking online at shoulder straps/supports but not sure if they are any good or a waste of money so if anyone has any experience of these that would be appreciated. gutted i cant get to the gym for a few months, but most of all worried about how my shoulder will be after it. any advice appreciated.
i wrecked my shoulder about 2years ago rolling i went to see big ronnie at the marine craft and he done a fair bit of work on it i wore a shoulder support for a month or so when i rolled it helped give me support until it healed up but i would reccommend you speak to sports injury person before getting one they would tell you whats best for you.

Hi Thaininja I used to train with Jon Nic etc. Ask them about all the problems I had with my shoulder. if it is a proper labrum tear it will never heal without surgical intervention. If you go back to training and it keeps popping out you will end up like me i.e. 2 major shoulder reconstructions. You don't want that, I would seriously consider surgery, you should speak to a physio/doctor about it, not the most positive note I know.
Hi guys,thanks for taking the time to reply.The dr said because I had 3 years between dislocations he wanted to see how I got on with physio before thinking of getting an operation.i must admit after the physio stopped last time I never did the exercises I was shown much,just did general strength work so think this time I'll need to focus alot more on strengthening them long term,I know it sounds daft that I never did them much but because I had no issues I thought I would be ok. Big m what type of support did you buy?im thinking about something to use long term for support/reassurance.u guys got any recommendations of sports injury specialists to speak to? Cheers again
dude if you have started training at the unit go see big Ronnie at the marine craft in Dumbarton he looks after us all from the unit i used a vukan one thatotally covers one half of your chest all the way down your bicep paid about £30 for it but it did work but like i say go see Ronnie John and the rest of us go to him with most things he will tell you if he can help you or you can.
Thanks mate didnt realise he was in Dumbarton,I'll get in contact after I start doing my physio.think I've saw the type of support you mentioned,at the moment I'm thinking I'll wear one for a good while,thats the problem with this injury never know if/when it will happen again
