    Injury is a big part of every sport. Many times with injuries, the important thing is not what happens, but how the athlete responds to it. The more proactive with getting treatments and the more determined the person is, the less the injury matters. I have a history of shoulder problems, but it never held me back from playing. Since I had a manageable injury, I was able to continue playing the football with the right help. When I first started playing football, in 8th grade, I dislocated my shoulder for the first time. Little did I know that when my shoulder dislocated, it stretched part of my labrum. The labrum is the socket that holds the ball of the shoulder and keeps it secure. After stretching it that first time, it only made it more susceptible to happen again. As a three sport athlete in highschool, I had no offseason to let my injury heal. In return, my shoulder would dislocate more often, and during other sporting events. Over the first half of my high school athletic career, I ended up tearing my labrum along with two other ligaments. By the time my junior year football season rolled around, my shoulder would dislocate up to three times a game. Junior year was the biggest year of my life in several aspects, but especially in football. This was the year where I solidified my position as a captain of my team and an impact player in my area. There was a lot of hype behind my team and I; there was no way I was sitting out due to an injury. Every game my trainer would…

    Everyone has that one thing in life they enjoy doing. For me that is spending time with my horse, Sparkle. I could spend hours with her every day. I look at Sparkle as my best friend more than I look at her as a horse. So, the day I jumped on her bareback I thought nothing of it. Sometimes even simple decision like that are the ones that you have to pay for. What I find important is that you are always learning from those decisions. Even today I am still learning from that decision even if it…

    The sports injury that we’ll be talking about is joint dislocation.

    Glenohumeral joint dislocations are injuries involved with damaged ligaments, fractures and neurovascular damage (Cunningham, 2012). The anterior dislocation, also known as the “subcoracoid dislocation” is when the humeral head (shoulder head) lies anterior and medial to the glenoid cavity (the fossa the humeral head articulates with). With this movement of the bone it causes pain, instability and restricts the joint. Static and dynamic forces prevent this joint from relocating (Cunningham,…
