Here is a video I made at the start of the month regarding my shoulder recovery. I dislocated my shoulder back in February snowboarding and it has happened three more times since. I thought if i just played disc golf and refrained from other more extreme sports this shoulder thing wouldn’t be an issue. Unfortunately I did damage to my shoulder labrum forcing me to have surgery to fix it.
I played disc golf all summer long with this injury and it didn’t stop me too much. It did inhibit me from throwing distance forehand shots and overhead shots. I won’t be back on the disc course playing until well into next spring. Hopefully when Spring comes i can get into the field, get my distance back and re-train my muscle memory for putting.
I will be posting videos after surgery documenting my recovery in hopes that anyone else going through this will be able to gain some confidence about having the surgery done. I look at other recovery videos out there and it looks like people are having a hard time and really need to be patient with the recovery. I hope to learn from that.
Wish me luck!
