Bit of a serious one this, sorry. (although any pi$$ taking would be appreciated!)
Had a nasty accident last February where I did myself various bits of damage. All fixed, or so I thought..
I was off the bike for 2 months after I hyperextended and dislocated my right shoulder, damaging the cartiledge and tendons. After a MRI scan, I was advised to rest for a few weeks then take it easy and build the strength back up with physio. All fine after that. This Monday, while checking the bike out my shoulder dislocated all on it's own while drinking a brew!! Cue tea all down me and the bike. Went to the docs and he said just rest for a day or two should let it settle. Woke up this morning to find it dislocated again!! Phoned my mate who ran me round to A&E where they popped it back in and got a physio to have a quick look at me. I had full movement again and full strength, just a bit tender. Recommended that I rest it for a day or two then try riding the bike round the streets to check everything's good before going mad again. The physio is a biker himself so had a bit of sympathy for me but did say it was probably going to be like this for the rest of my time as it wasn't bad enough for an op. All he could suggest was doing the exercises I did from the first time and get it checked every now and again.
Has anyone had a similar injury and know of anything I can do to stop it happening or at least prevent it? I'm fine when on the bike as that's where the strength is, the weak point is when I'm doing normal stuff like getting something out of a cupboard or getting the shopping out of the car.
As I ride solo a lot of the time, the last thing I want is to be stuck in the middle of nowhere with a buggered shoulder and no phone signal!!
All help appreciated.
