Default shoulder injury question

Hello, my name is Robert Wareheim and I live in Maine and am an avid rider. I dislocated my shoulder at the begining of January and it was out for a good five hours or so. The doc said with the appropriate brace I might be able to get in a couple days of easy riding right about now, but of course, the brace is not that cheap. I was wondering if anyone could tell me how much some braces help and if it's worth risking further injury and surgery or not.
Sincerely,
Rob W.

I'd say don't risk it. Even with a shoulder brace, lots can happen.

what kind of brace did he recomend? My shoulder has been all messed up since a partial dislocation back in the day. Now it can partial dislocate quite easily. That gets old fast.

Hi and thanks for the advice. I have kind of been thinking that, as much as I love to ride, I also love not needing surgery. I'm kind of on the fence still, though.

The doc reccomended a Don Joy brace that wraps around all funky and has a rigid strap that restricts movement all together in the necessary areas. It has not arrived yet, but it looks like something that a guy will only want to use as a temporary assistant to healing and not a permenant "solution". If you like, I can get you the exact specs. within the next couple of days so that you can ask your doctor.
I figured it's probably a good thing to have on hand for other stuff too, like football or snowmobiling. (Quite possibly the second and third greatest forms of recreation respectively)
Anyway, thanks for replying.
Rob

The brace is going to be a hell of a lot cheaper than surgery!! trust me!

I have been wearing this for about 2 weeks now and its great Amazon.com: EVS SB02 Shoulder Brace - Large/Black: Automotive

Default So...

Graphic - would that brace help avoid "falling on overextened arm"?

That im not too sure about. I tore the ligiments in my shoulder and had surgery, and this brace pulls my shoulder both in and down.

Is the bone sticking up? I had surgery on 2/15/11 and couldn't really use it for a week....pretty painful at first, then it got better. I could of been back up the mountain a couple weeks ago, but with the money I have already dumped into this thing, I wasn't about to flush it down the toilet. The dr. told me about 3 months before I could really start lifting any sort of really heavy weights.
