Thread: Dislocated my arm-2nd time

[QUOTE=FEND.]Just becareful of the weights if you're gonna do weight lifting.[/Q
Be careful.Recurrent shoulder dislocation despite rest/phsiotherapy usually means surgery to repair ligaments/joint capsule.Your physio can reccommend a guard and you may want to see your Orthopaedic surgeon for MRI scan shoulder if it still dislocates.

The weights are light, just want to strengthen my shoulder to ensure it I don't dislocate my shoulder again.
Yes, the orthopaedic specialist said if it happens again he will do a scan. So I'm going to do everything I can to make sure THAT doesn't happen.
I was wondering, is this type of injury common among badminton players?? What causes it?

No, this type of injury is very rare in badminton players. It is more common in "adventure sports", especially canooing.
The typical cause of a dislocated shoulder is a large force pulling the arm away from the joint. This could be due to an impact, or it could be due to a contorted position which pulls on the joint (this can happen in caving when someone gets stuck).
I've never heard of anyone dislocating his shoulder in badminton. The forces in badminton should not be great enough to do this; you should need some external force to dislocate a shoulder. It could be that you have unusually weak ligaments in the shoulder.

Yes, I think my ligaments are rather weak in both shoulders. The first time I obtained a dislocation in my left shoulder was because a friend of mine just happen to hit me playfully with her hand on my left shoulder and it went of of place just like that! And that girl that hit me wasn't exactly a muscular girl.. she's a very very slim girl(Waist size 22 inches! How huge can she be then?).
My doctor said I don't need to visit a physio therapist for now(as long as it doesn't occur again), but maybe it's because he doesn't know that I want to continue playing badminton.
Fend, that site helped me alot, thanks Only I got afraid when I read this sentence, "When younger patients (less than about 35 years old) sustain a traumatic dislocation, shoulder instability will follow in about 80% of patients."
Mine wasn't that serious.. so I doubt I have it.. right?

Multiple repeated dislocations may indicate a shoulder instability.
Any dislocation tends to increase the chance of future dislocations, but of course there is plenty of variation depending on the individual, and on the degree of trauma involved.
Your dislocations were not associated with an especially traumatic event (well, I'm sure it was pretty nasty, but that's not the medical definition of "trauma"). Therefore, you have a better chance than most dislocatees of maintaining sufficient shoulder stability to avoid future dislocations.
Careful rehabilitation to activity, and taking the advice of medical professionals, will improve your recovery prospects. Bear in mind that sometimes general practitioners are a bit dismissive of physiotherapy; if your doctor is ambivalent ("You don't *really* need physio"), then you might benefit from consulting a physiotherapist anyway. You certainly have nothing to lose from physiotherapy.
My experience of rehabilitation suggests that, even when my doctor doesn't think I need physio, I should still take it. My GP is not trained to make the sort of detailed analysis that my physio has provided. Whilst my GP only saw the symptoms, my physio has detected the long-term causes of those symptoms.

My dislocation is far from being considered 'trauma'. Lol. I think it's only a semi-dislocation, because hardly any real force caused it to go out of place. And it went back in place pretty quickly.
I've only dislocated my right shoulder twice.. and the 2nd time was because most likely it was still in the recovering process when I overdid it.
Missing my tournament tomorrow. Feel so irresponsible, my opponent gets a walkover!
Is there such thing as a 'sports' doctor? One that specialises in sports injuries?
03-10-2005, 10:02 AM #26
Well, there's certainly a "sports physiotherapist".

Change your technique...
Maybe your technique is wrong and pulls the arm outta place. It seems very rare though.

Maybe my technique is wrong.. but it's rather weird that I'll suddenly start lobbing wrongly after so many years of training, right?
Double jointed eh.. eew.
But I can do the 2nd last picture. I'm sure many people can do that??

Then again I can't do that.
I need to know how a 'normal' shoulder/arm feels after intensive playing/training. After dislocating my shoulder, I really don't know what's normal anymore.
Does your shoulder ache after training 2-3 hours?
