I'm always surprised at the number of people who will respond to questions on this board. Thanks for all the comments. It sounds like a good rest, a commited workout and rehab program and crossed fingers are all I can do (for the time being.) Thanks for the comments.

Hey Jason! Sorry to hear about your shoulder. What kind of tests did your DR. order. You may want to think about an MRI. It's the best way to visualize those ligaments to see how much damage has been done without direct visualization with arthroscopy. All the suggestions previous to mine are right on. Make sure you rest it, then do the rehab as instructed. It will be an ongoing process for the rest of your life to keep it strong. It is true, once dislocated and each time after it becomes more lax and easier to dislocate. Once you start kayaking keep the wings in and become very protective of it. Shoulder injuries and the no. 1 injury for kayakers. Warm ups and stretching need to be done prior to your runs. And make sure you have a good Ortho taking care of you. I work with sev. good ones here in the ER in Aspen. Good Luck! Dee
