not even injuries stop this train
« on: September 29, 2010, 05:12:20 AM »
my left shoulder became dislocated a while back but i never got it put back in because i was too scared of surgery or the pain i'd feel when it got put back in .when i got out of my sling i did about 15 wall climbs every day so i could get my strength back in that arm and now im back to show the world that i wont be stopped from doing parkour.

Cool. Just make sure you take it easy. Starting to strengthen it is a good thing. But If you injure it again it will take a lot longer to heal, and it will probably hurt more. 
Weight training alongside parkour always benefits, it never takes away.

You should seriously see a doctor. I'm afraid for you. You could end up ruining your shoulder forever and never being able to practice parkour again.

You need to man up to the pain and go see a doc ASAP.

How do you dislocate a shoulder and not have it reset into place?  That's long term injury no matter how you spin it.

If you REALLY wanted to show the world that nothing would stop you from doing parkour then you would have manned up and got the surgery to ensure your shoulder continues to be useable.

If it's in a dodgy state the last thing you want to be doing is putting a lot of strain on it, because one time you might just find you rip a ton of ligaments apart causing permanent damage and ending your ability to do parkour forever.

no my arm works just like before it just looks funny now is all and it happened almost a year back so i've had plenty of time to get my strength back. ever since that happened ive noticed that i have to make sure that every step, jump, or leap counts because if i get careless then i'll be done for good. i know what im doing and im not going extremely hard im taking my own pace with the consideration of my arm.

Dislocations always result in ligament damage, and I don't even know what comes with not having it properly reset.  That's not something to leave to R.I.C.E and just hope it'll eventually work out.  But hey, to each his own I guess.  Good luck with your training and I hope this doesn't hold you back.

I agree with everyone. You should get your shoulder checked out. IT's not badass or anything that you ignored it, it's dumb. Not setting could result in permanent damage.

I think one of the most important points of being a traceur is "self preservation." You should definatly have your shoulder checked out, it may be nothing. If so then grats, but you don't want to risk your health because you think you are fine. Trust me I have had a few problems because of this same stubornness a couple of years back when I wrestled. (def learned my lesson). :(

I feel for ya OP! I broke my collarbone several weeks ago, and I'm unable to do arm training at the moment so what am I doing? I'm just working on leg: strength, jumping height, and basic kicks for tricking. And honestly I sort of love the fact that I broke my collarbone because now I'm feeling even stronger than before!
