View Full Version : My shoulder is jacked up
07-08-2007, 02:57 PM
About a year ago in a motocross race I crashed fairly hard and dislocated my shoulder. Went to the doctor, spent a month doing rehab, and everything was fine.
Well, while having a brain fart, (I'm 5'8" 177lbs) I wrestled a guy that was 6'5" 285lbs. I had technique and speed but he got me in a weird position and my shoulder popped out again. My question: What is the best thing to do about this? I really don't want it to mess up my bulk cycle so I don't want to stop working out.....but it hurts to just put pressure on it in the right spot. What should I do?
Don't focus on your bulk right now.
Make your priority fixing your shoulder again.
If need be, go back to the doc.

I dislocated my shoulder over a year ago in basketball practice. Never went to the doctor or nothing due to my coach said it would fix its self haha. Since then I have had it pop out numerous times. After a while you get use to it but give it a week or 2 and let it quit hurting/sore and then get back at lifting. I have found out in all of my trial and errors that if i let it set back in place for a couple days and then go back to lifting it doesnt bother me. I just have to be careful with what I do. Weight lifting actually helps out more than what you know because the muscles form around the shoulder helping it stay in place. So maybe try just takeing a week off and letting the shoulder heal.

I had something similar happen to my right shoulder, I fell asleep in a weird position and had one of those "scare yourself awake" things where you are just about to fall asleep and then fly up scared to death. My shoulder crackled, I felt a burning sensation, and I could barely move it for about 20 minutes. Now it pops when I do a full rotation and it still hurts certain ways I move it, haven't done my shoulder day since.
Go to the doctor, hopefully you didn't injure your rotator cuff badly because those can take months to heal. He may even give you a shot to help with the inflammation.
