Iím very depressed and I need advice from someone who knows anything about that. 4 years ago while I was lifting weight I have dislocated my left shoulder and it came back after 7 seconds so I didnít go to the doctor. I stopped exercising from that time
, after 2 years I dislocated it again due to a wrong movement. 2 months I have been to the doctor and he said that I might need a surgery to fix it. Iím sure that he wants only the money so Iím not sure that I really need this surgery plus itís very expensive in my country (Egypt) 4,000$ to 5,000$ and I canít afford it now.
I have read online that lifting weight can fix this problem because it will make my shoulder stronger. Is that true? I mean do I have a hope other than the surgery?
Today I started lifting weight at home and I was using 13.65 pounds for each arm, I was fine until the exercises that let me move my shoulder above like the exercise Lateral Raise. I felt some pain in my left shoulder but I successfully completed 2 sets (12 rep each) of that exercise.
I tried the same exercise again but I have used only 5.25 pounds instead of 13.65 for each arm and I felt that I have no problem doing it and I have done 4 sets (12 rep each).
My thinking that I can use those 5.25 pounds and do 8 sets of 12 repetition to make my arms stronger then after 8 weeks I will increase the weight for 10 pounds. But in the same time I will use the 13.65 for the exercises that I have no problems with like Curls for biceps and Triceps extensions. Does this will help me to avoid the surgery
Thanks for help
