  • Left side got bad this past year. If I move it the wrong way, severe pain brings me to my knees. Now the right is going.  6 weeks of PT did nothing. Anyone got a success story? A great doc in western LI or NYC?

  • Heard a pop on my 3rd wave at Brandon's halfway through my trip in Barbados in early February. No surfing rest of trip and surfed once a few weeks ago to test it out, not even close to 50%. Diagnosed with tendinitis-ice and time. Also on my left shoulder, doesnt hurt to bad paddling it's the pop up is so painful. I swear as soon as I hit 40 I've had 3 super weird injuries that have lasted 3-4 months or more.......wtf!

  • Believe it or not, the only thing that worked for my shoulder (besides rest), was...yoga. I know, sounds ridiculous, but it did. I'm not ruling out coincidence and the "time heals all wounds" possibility, but hey, what do you have to lose?

    I started doing a Lil yoga every morning with morning coffee. . Body feels better for sure... Only 4 or 5 poses makes a big difference.. I'm always on the floor with my kids anyways so

  • Dr. Ticker in lynbrook and merrick. He did my wife's shoulder this past December and a few friends earlier in the year. He's with orlein and Cohen.hes one o the best if not the best.
    No matter how hard you train, it all comes down to confidence.

  • Ryan, yeah the 40 mark is definitely a thing.  For anyone reading this that's not 40 yet, that's probably a good time to start looking up exercises to protect your important parts (ie shoulders), if not earlier.
    Yoga is good...didn't think of it for shoulders but hey why not.
    Thanks for the recommendation surfdoc.  I'll def look that guy Ticker up.

    Paddled out today, could barely get the left arm up out of the water for the return stroke.  Somehow caught a quick three waves and paddled in.  Prob should lay off for a while.  Though the range of motion did get a little better after the session.

  • I'm on the wrong side of 50.  Had rotator cuff surgery in 92.  Never was 100% after that.  I've had pain in both shoulders on/off for years.  As well as elbows, wrists, hips, knee, .... u get the point.  What I have learned is if I want to still play hard -- and I do --  rest and ice and stretching are the key.  Rest is the most important thing and the hardest to employ.  Missing a week or 3 or 8 seems like forever - at the time.  In the scheme of years, though, it's nothing.  I have mostly been too hard-headed to accept that, but have gotten better the last couple years.  Of course, go see an ortho and get a diagnosis.  But if it comes back negative, you know the answer.

  • Sorry to hear.. This is what worked/working for me:

    Shoulder dislocations with a broom stick or a resistance band

    Internal rotation stretch (commonly used with a towel or shirt, when you get good you can grab the other hand)

    Passive and active hangs from a pull up bar or something of the sort. Literally "hanging out" on the bar (requires some grip strength too, which can be limiting for some)

    Check out the moves online if you are unfamiliar, to learn proper form and execution, feel better !

  • I'll echo the yoga thing - especially Restorative Yoga.


    http://www.abhyasayogacenter.com/



    This guy, J. Brown, has a video of his program, which I do about 1-2 a week. It's all based around the ujjayi breath which is the foundation of the practice. Also the basis for the breathing you see Healy, Laird and Wim Hoff all promoting.


    Here's the specific move which can really help get the crunchiness out of your shoulders - and help strengthen those stabilizer muscles and ligaments.

    J. Brown Yoga - The 7 Minute Practice With Extra Teaching Commentary


    After 3 dislocations and countless separations, I've had very minor issues since doing this routine. If you get a chance, go to the class. It's different than any other class and I think it's helpful to promote healing and prevent injuries.


    I think splitting up your training days with restorative days is more balanced. Maybe 1 restorative for every 2 strength training days. And I'd never strength train an injured area - let it heal to at least 80% or so.

    I dislocated my left shoulder in Oct., 5 months later and maybe 60% ROM.There is a slim chance I'd be able to get into a winterweight wetsuit with no chance of getting out of it. :o [size=78%] I am going to give this a try. I need to get back in the water.[/size]

  • I had the same thing a couple years ago, turned out to be a torn rotator. Sounds very similar to what you're experiencing so you should definitely get an MRI and whatever you do, don't be surfing on it. Tears don't heal but you can definitely make them worse.

  • Hospital of Special Surgery opened a satellite office in the Omni building next to Nassau Coliseum. Dr Harry Briner is excellent. He's the guy to go to if you don't want surgery. By the way, I highly recommend Yoga as well. Just be careful of aggravating it too much. Cant approach it like a workout. Good Luck

    I would think he'd be a cardiologist.
