dislocated shoulder help.

A couple weeks ago on September 17th I dislocated my shoulder riding. I did this once before early July this year. The first time it popped out and went back in on it's own really quick, with in a couple seconds. This second time was a little worse, it happens so quick it's hard to say which way it went out. I believe it popped out backwards.

Anyways, I have been rehabbing it on my own with lots of internal and external rotation exercises and stretches. It is definitely getting stronger and the range of motion is coming back. But this morning I went to do some wall slides on the ground and I cannot get my forearm to touch the ground at any point, also when my elbow is in contact with the ground and I am raising my arm I can only get it to shoulder level before it feels like it wants dislocate. At any other angle my shoulder pretty much has full range of motion, just not in the wall slide position.

Has anyone experienced this? Or know what the problem may be? I think it may be time for an MRI.

Re: dislocated shoulder help.

The position you are describing is called the 'apprehension position' (abducted and externally rotated) and is a test position used by physical therapists to test for and assess shoulder instability.
Have you done the wall slides before in this rehab program without discomfort and restriction or have you just added them in?
Does it feel like you can't move it further because it wants to dislocate or dies it feel like something is blocking its path?

I just started to add them in, I have never done them before. When raising my arm past shoulder level my shoulder really wants to pull my elbow off the ground, if I pullback to keep my elbow touching the ground while raising it feels like it wants to dislocate.

Re: dislocated shoulder help.

IMO you should get it checked out with a PT to see if there's anything else that's wrong there

I agree Steven. I have an appointment Oct 4th. I am seriously a mess right now, I have bilateral ACL knee surgery on Oct 21 and now my shoulder is messed up. Lots and lots of rehab coming up for me.
