dislocated sholder...

I lost so much weight running swimming yoga that I believe I have a dislocated shoulder. When I flex in the mirror the left really sticks out. I looked up dislocated shoulder on Wikipedia and .... I think I need to go get it looked at. Ex-ray first? then chiropractor? I will not have time till after Topeka.

Last Fall I was riding mx and on a rather smaller triple. I over shot a little and the bike bottomed out and immediately rared up into a wheelie. My arms went up with it but my body and torso hit the tank. There is the action that pulled the left shoulder out.

Maybe there is such a thing as a mild dislocation and maybe that's what you have. Don't know.

But I dislocated mine twice on the dirtbike and and it was the worst pain I ever experienced. Tony and paladin drove me to the ER and they said I was as white as a ghost. I also was not able to move the arm at all until they put it back in place. In my case there was no question something was severely wrong.

General practicioner will look at it and then send you to an orthopedic doctor if he thinks something is wrong. Not a chiropractor

Good luck!

Eric

told ya that your suspension was waay too soft for serious jumps. Soft setup will not give you a margin for an error when you land flat.

I ruptured the ligament in my shoulder in a bike accident. I thought it was dislocated by the way my shoulder hung low. Six months later in a sling and my right clavicle sticks up higher than the left one.

People take these things too seriously!
