    Hi, Just wondering if any shooters out there have (or had) dislocated shoulder injuries ... and continued shooting ? If so, how has it worked out for you ? I just finished my first full summer of trapshooting .... and noticed recently my shoulder starting to have a lingering soreness. Then the other day, after 300 rounds, or so, I took a shot that sent stinging pain thru my shoulder. I immediately put the gun down for the day. I had successful shoulder surgery years ago ... and am a little afraid if I keep shooting I could re-injur the shoulder. Not sure what to do.
    Thanks, Brian

    I agree with the previous poster. Find a good orthopedic surgeon and discuss your concerns. I used to have an issue with dislocating my shoulder. I've since had shoulder surgery and after that broke my collar bone on the same shoulder. Everything feels fine, but it took some time.

    "Dislocated shoulder" and ".........that sent a stinging pain through my shoulder" was probably perceived as "it really hurts" and folks were concerned about you. Nothing wrong with that.

    I have over the years dislocated both shoulders so much I lost count on how many times they have been out. I've since had both repaired. I had three discs fused in my neck about 5 years ago. Shooting rarely bothers them, and I shoot quite a bit. Good luck, and keep shooting. Larry

    Pain is normally the body's way of telling you something is wrong.

    I would "assume" if you continue to have pain that there is a problem.

    Personally I join those above who said see a doctor, OR.. you can just wait till you have done enough damage that you can no longer shoot.

    Pain in my neck and shoulder blade area, left me with getting an MRI....an disc problem between C-5 and C-6 was immediately discovered. Therapy is going well, and hope to be back shooting in a few months. See a good orthopedic!!
