psychosaif Thanks for reply guys. I have popped mine about 5 times and i was able to put it back in immediately. What sucks is that it pops from very basic spills, kinda all of sudden, im sure you guys know what im talking about. Im going to try out the brace and see what it does for me, hopefully more good than harm.

kpd2003 Hate to say it but with shoulder injuries once its happened you are in for a long journey. Certain things that seem trivial will cause you to ache, or even worse, get a sudden "flash" of pain that can send your head into a huge daze.

My key is to be more reactive than proactive - Know how to "pop" your shoulder back into place. It's not going to be fun and the pain can suck really bad but it's important to be able to do if you have nobody around. Also, the longer the shoulder stays out of place the worse damage you are doing to your tendons and muscles. Your doc can give you some basic tips but you will only truly know when you've had the shoulder dislocate and can successfuly get it back to place.

I have to put my dislocated arm between my legs and pull hard from both sides

cjcameron11 Yes it is very possible, I know 2 people who have dislocated while wearing a brace or having their shoulder taped. As far as putting it back in, I honestly don't know. In sure google may help with that question

psychosaif Does any know if you can pop out a shoulder while wearing a brace? if so, is it even more difficult to put it back in place with the brace on? I just bought a EVS brace for this season but im nervous of this happening or am i not making sense at all?

chrisbryan89 I do agree that to properly rehab an injury, especially in the shoulder, you have to put forth the effort. If you do self rehab daily you can reuturn it to former strength. It definitely takes time and work on your part to fix it, and a brace itself is never going to heal an injury, or prevent further harm. But it does provide support.

cjcameron11 while i agree that most people dont return to 100% i firmly believe this is due to lack of rehab and/or lack of knowledge about the right type of rehab, and of course after rehab weight training. I dislocated my right shoulder in 05 and missed 3 games (bball) mid season, after that it took me almost a year but i got to have (and still do) a shoulder that is more stable and stronger than it was before. I was doing rehab the morning after the injury and yes i did have the advantage of having a college medical staff to help with treatment but i still took it upon myself to do rehab and strength exercises all day everyday for about 9 months so i was better than before. I know everyone is different and it may be that they way i fell i minimised the ligament damage but constant weight training and physio is the key. I also popped my left AC joint in 2001 and also did the same sort of stuff and again the same result, IMO its all about hard work and rehab managment

chrisbryan89 I've done alot of rehab and strengthening excercises, and my shoulder has returned to 90% of what it was. However, as most people who have had shoulder injuries with or without surgery, know that once you injure your shoulder it never returns to 100% strength. The brace just helps support the shoulder and gives a little peace of mind. If you are rehabing an injury it's a great way to keep your shoulder supported and can allow you to keep doing the activities you love to do in your life. Depending on how severe your injury is of course.

cjcameron11 Instead of relying on a brace for the rest of your life which will eventually make the joint less stable how bout you try some rehab and strengthening exercises. I have had my fair share of injuries and i do believe that braces have their place (knee brace, ankle brace, back, neck etc) but to brace a shoulder is not only extremely difficult to do but it is sometimes pointless depending on the activity you partake in. As im sure you know the shoulder is a ball and socket joint, which like the hip gives us the abilty to have the maximum amount of rotation and movement compared to a elbow or knee which allows for limited movement. This basically means even if braced if you fall at the right (or wrong) angle while snowboarding the brace will not and physically cannot stop you from re-injuring the shoulder. Thus physical work on the joint is the only sure way to make everything stronger and less prone to injury, even if you are past the point of rehab and surgery is the only option then strength training will help you recover faster after having the surgery. There are heaps of options online to find exercises and info, here are some i like

I have been wearing this for about 2 weeks now and its great EVS SB02 Shoulder Brace - Large/Black: Automotive
I have been using this same brace ever since I tore my rotator cuff about a year and a half ago. Best $30 I ever spent. I can't lift without it tho and will probably have to keep wearing something similar till the day I die. Kind of a pain in the ass but worth it to avoid further injury
