Persistant Shoulder Injury - Any help appreciated!

Postby daveuk » Sun Apr 22, 2012 2:31 pm

I have a long running shouler injury, which I have had an open anterior stabilisation to try to fix. Since then the shoulder has not dislocation, but regularly clunks and possibly subluxes(?).
The humeral head on this shoulder sits a lot further forward than on the other side, and I have tried just about everything, stretching pecs, foam roller, physio's, specialists, accupunture, release etc.
I have worked on back a lot and eased off chest, but it still doesn't work. The most recent physio I'v seen was just as puzzled as I am and pretty useless (information wise) to be honest.
So any help is appreciated, I am still working out a 3-5 days a week and don't intend to stop, but I need any advice possible. It seems like the condition only temporarily gets better - i.e for a couple of days max, then comes back. Other than that it feels unstable most of the time, though never fully comes out and I hope it never does again!
Have done the usual external rotation, scapular stabilisation exercises etc but doesn't seem to do much.
Please help!
Many thanks in advance

I have no idea and you must be frustrated that the professionals can't give you a solid answer.
You could ask in this thread -> viewtopic.php?f=20&t=24030
