|51bombed||after a freestyle motox incident involved a wide range of injuries to my shoulder/neck area[i.e. collarbone, rotary cuff, dislocation, multiple breaks/fractures in arm] i often dislocate my shoulder now... even happened on a rope swing this summer huckin flips into a lake. after the initial week and half or so of getting it back in and the bruising feeling that comes with it subsides when it's rested im usually back out doing whatever, i just avoid lifting above my shoulder height or putting workloads on it. extreme pain if i do and that period lasts about a month/2months for me. ongoing for about 4 years now|

|Willy36||One day short of 7 weeks after the initial injury, got back out and it did great Even landed on it kinda funny a few times and it never had an issue. Still really weak, but very stable. Anyways, I'm back on a board, so that's all I care about right now (and of course getting my damn strength back)|

Shoulder injuries suck!
I popped BOTH of mine out at the same (left out the front, right out the back) playing rugby two years ago. They've both popped out countless times since then, though luckily it hasn't happened again since the end of last boarding season. Caught an edge bombing a run and landed right on my right shoulder again. I was able to set it (got pretty damn good at that over a year!) but it still bothered me for weeks.
The most important thing is to really keep up with PT and to not get too ambitious when trying to get back to 100%. Let it heal naturally. I, like a dumbass 18 year old at the time, didn't. Kept lifting on them after the first injury and it completely screwed me over. I used to DB press the 100s for 10 reps easy (highest my school had), now I can barely do 50s for 8. And that's after 3 months of sticking with PT and giving them a lot of time to rest between good workouts. Ruined my military aspirations and got me pretty depressed for a long time which led to me slacking in running and everything else. Only just now starting to really get back into shape, and am definitely taking it easy on my shoulders and keeping up with physio.

You two are lucky if you have never had full dislocations. When it pops back in, it's called a subluxation and I've had probably close to 20 of those on the right shoulder and 1 on the left. Thought they were pretty bad until this happened, then realized, they aren't so shabby
An update though: It has now been about 4 1/2 weeks and I feel like the shoulder is about 75-80%. The slowest thing to heal has been the deltoids; for some reason, they were been numb and completely non-functional until just about a week ago when finally they decided to join me again, though they're still weak as hell. I figure once I have enough strength in them to keep the shoulder in place even during hard impacts and the like, I'll be back on the mountains. Hopefully no more than another week and a half to 2 weeks.

|boarderaholic||Yeap, I'm in the same boat as you. Dislocated it Dec 5th, then again on the 10th. Only difference is the shoulder popped in again both times. I had a nice little chit chat with my therapist, and I'm looking at about 6-8 weeks healing time from the time of the first dislocation, 12 if I don't do my exercises. Be careful with that joint, because once you pop, you don't stop.|

I dislocated my right shoulder last year though it popped out and then back in. I was out for around a month and 1/2. I didn't go to physio though. When this happened it was in April so it was near the end of the season but still I was just given a tiny piece of blue thick cloth with velcro on each end to hold my arm in place, It hurt like heck the first 1-2 weeks but after that it went away and was fine.
Currently i haven't noticed any problems with it other than sometimes when i'm walking and my arms are swinging i notice my right arm isn't as much as my left arm but I can move it around with no pain so its kinda wierd.
Good Luck and hope you recover fast

|m_jel||keep training and strengthening your shoulders. i've had problems with both of mine, and i decided to get lazy for a month or 2 this summer, and guess what? it popped out playing volleyball after being good for a year and a half. Now I'm being told to look at surgery because the same shoulder jsut popped out playing some hockey (slipped out while pokechecking)|
