Re: Slap Surgery Chronicles

Doing better. Still sore but my ROM and strength is better. Still can't get the flexibility to get under a barbell so I did a light dumbell workout today. Squats, lunges and deadlifts. Nothing more than 50#. The squats I had to leave the DB hanging at my sides which was awkward. I can't hold them over my shoulder yet. Slowly gonna build back though....

Re: Slap Surgery Chronicles

This is nice progress! Keep it up. Strengthen what you can, as safely as you can. Glad your ROM is improved. Holding the squat bar is tough. Glad you're not forcing it. Thanks for the update.

Re: Slap Surgery Chronicles

Darla,

I sustained a slap tear in my left shoulder in late 2006 doing snatches. I had surgery on it in 2007 and it healed to 100% very quickly. For the rest of 2007, 2008, and 2009, I stayed away from Crossfit-type workouts for fear of another shoulder injury. I started up again late 2010 (after having done "Starting Strength" type workouts 2007-2010), and within 6 weeks I injured my right shoulder doing high rep OHS (December 2010).

I haven't gone in to see my ortho yet for the right shoulder. I will soon.

What do you plan on doing to avoid having this problem again in the future? Are there certain exercises you plan to avoid? Knowing that you are susceptible to shoulder injuries, and now that you have a 2nd chance, what changes to your workouts will you make?

Justin

Are you able to do barbell work with different arm positions? Like the "dream of jeannie" pose or something, or is it any position that causes you to lift your shoulder super painful?

Yeah. I am pretty much limited to hanging by my side. My PT was pretty impressed I could do that even.

Re: Slap Surgery Chronicles

I actually got under the bar today! Yay. It wasn't pretty and I could only barely grasp it with my fingertips but I did squats with the bar!!! Tuesday will mark 3 weeks.
