Nursing shoulder injury

You can have shoulder dislocation or shoulder separation. They are two different things. You overuse your shoulder and put weight over time. You will tear soft tissues; tendon and ligament and this is called shoulder dislocation.

In my case, I had a bad ski fall and took a severe impact on the left shoulder. I use a shoulder brace and slept on the good side. I made sure I had full range of motion. Later you start getting back full motions, the more difficult it gets.

After this injury, whenever I load my shoulder or overuse, it tends to hurt. So, I do these exercises to keep pain away.

Modern medicine changes its procedure and have a patient sit up within 24 hours of an open heart surgery.

However, I learned hard way that your shoulder is complicated and requires active rehabilitation to recover. You need a rehab to stabilize.

See this simple video just using nothing but a rubber band. Here is another video with good explanation by Expert Village. Here is another video. The gentlest one is this video.

You should do these exercises to both sides.


  1. seems impossible, almost five years since my father was diagnosed with shoulder problems, and this with a strong treatment, but now is having a hard hit because when dysfunction was a problem in the past but returned and want to take generic viagra and do not know if this may affect your treatment and if in the same manner and shall take effect not do?

  2. Nursing a shoulder injury will be smooth, depending on how grave is the injury and the rehabilitation method you're using. When I got confined to the hospital due to an arm injury due to a bad fall from the skate ramp. The first thing I saw after waking up is the doctor asking me questions and talking about my past records in the hospital with the use of their medical billing service that compiles the patient's data.

    Everything they've done to me, from surgery to rehabilitation was in their practice management software, after many months of recovery later, I was back on track and more careful than ever.
