Need light exercise suggestions for shoulder strengthening - June 2, 2013, 04:16 PM

So my quandary is this. I badly dislocated my shoulder last weekend. It's back in place, weak, needs some additional PT to add strength to get me through the summer.

A doctor will recommend surgery. When you have dislocated it 8-12 times in the past 15 years....it's a no brainer. I'm just hoping to get through the summer/vacations first.

So who has had it? What kind of physical therapy? I'm trying to hold off for a bit on PT due to the insurance limitatations and near certainty of needing it post-operative.

No dislocation experience, but plenty of PT for tendonitis, chipped bones, and cartilage damage. Theraband is great, but you need to figure out the right exercises. When I had an overuse injury with my shoulder, I would lay on a bed/table longitudinally with my arm hanging off and started letting it pendulum forward and backward along the length of the surface (displacement is along axis of body, or another way to think of it, rotational axis is the line from one shoulder to another). Add weight as it becomes more comfortable, but don't try and muscle it. May help, may not.

but I am finding that "Thumb to base" is not possible. So my choice is ... Not TtB and have hand fly off and cause head injury. Or....TtB and pop arm out of shoulder socket again.

Hmmmm. I did lose feeling in my arm/hand. Stranger perhaps?

Contact Jeff Martone through his website: Contact Us

He's a high end trainer (working with military, MMA guys, etc) who had a buttload of dislocations, surgeries, etc and finally fixed his dislocation issue himself.

He does have a book too, if you wanted to go that route: Kettlebell Rx: The Complete Guide for Athletes and Coaches
