Top 10 Shoulder Dislocations

Letโ€™s look back on the top 10 shoulder dislocations over the past decade which eventually led to shoulder instability
and this recent Latarjet procedure to fix it!
10. Junior hockey ๐Ÿ’. Getting run from behind by an overweight defense man.
9. Rough housing with my older brother in Mexico ๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡ฝ.
8. Swinging my water bottle at an aggressive Magpie while pre riding the 2013 World 24Hr course in Canberra Australia ๐Ÿ‡ฆ๐Ÿ‡บ. Shoulder came back after a few seconds.
7. Crashing at 2am in the 2013 World 24Hr champs ๐Ÿ‡ฆ๐Ÿ‡บ, shoulder came back in after 10-15 minutes of trying.
6. Throwing my bike over the shoulder (and the shoulder out) to hike a bike over Thorong La pass at the 2014 Yak Attack in Nepal ๐Ÿ‡ณ๐Ÿ‡ต. Popped back in after a minute.
5. Post race massage in Pokhara ๐Ÿ‡ณ๐Ÿ‡ต after 2014 Yak Attack. 90 lb Nepalese pushed the shoulder out and then freaked out and ran away. Shoulder came back in after a few minutes.
4. Slipping on a rock while swimming in a Billabong in North Australia ๐Ÿ‡ฆ๐Ÿ‡บ. 3 hr hike out to the hospital to have it relocated.
3. Crashing off the side of a Himalaya mtn in North India ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ณ while trying to avoid an oblivious hiker in 2016. Two travellers helped me hike out 4 hours. A hippy German doctor tried to relocate it with no luck. Eventually my friends and I started talking about the Dalai Lama which relaxed everything, and the shoulder popped back in.
2. Crashing on a water pipe while training on the mountains surrounding Kathmandu ๐Ÿ‡ณ๐Ÿ‡ต, February 2020. Spent the next 4 hours hiking out then grabbing a rough taxi ride to the hospital to have it relocated. Missed my flight to Spain ๐Ÿ‡ช๐Ÿ‡ธ for the @andaluciabikerace and instead walked right into a 7 month lockdown in the Himalayas.
1. December 2020, got a pole stuck while ski touring down Canoe mountain in Valemount ๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡ฆ with Reiner Thoni . Spent the next 4 hours skiing out and driving to Mcbride to get it relocated. Doctor over drugged me, and I made the decision it was time to get this shoulder fixed.
January 2021. Declan Unsworth made some calls and soon I was under the ๐Ÿ”ช at the Banff Sports Med Hospital, getting repaired by Doctor Heard ๐Ÿ™ .
*Honourable mentions…
-Kayaking in Victoria ๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡ฆ with Rob Fawcett.
– Leaning on the shoulder the wrong way while getting out of bed to race stage 3 of the Titan Desert in Morocco ๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡ฆ, 2016.
