Oh Hosta was that the pusscat you told us about? The one that tries to come indoors if you leave the bedroom windows open? Sad
I'll tell the GP about my shoulder at my next regular check up. I spoke to Bro the other day who reminded me that his shoulders dislocate quite easily - once when he sneezed when his arm was raised and resting on a ledge! We both have large bones, loose ligaments and joints which tend to be shallow and hyper-flexive (hence my dodgy knee).
This looks like it:
Some people with shoulder instability have never had a dislocation. Most of these patients have looser ligaments in their shoulders. This increased looseness is sometimes just their normal anatomy. Sometimes, it is the result of repetitive overhead motion.
Swimming, tennis, and volleyball are among the sports requiring repetitive overhead motion that can stretch out the shoulder ligaments. Many jobs also require repetitive overhead work.
Looser ligaments can make it hard to maintain shoulder stability. Repetitive or stressful activities can challenge a weakened shoulder. This can result in a painful, unstable shoulder."
Think it may be something to do with the tennis - it's not fair - they keep telling us to take exercise - bdooly dangerous stuff, exercise
