    Rehab broken shoulder

    Repost from the General forum...

    I broke shoulder socket (glenoid area) Memorial Day on a mtn bike ride. I will be getting surgery to put it back together end of July. I start rehab soon after that.

    My question is if anyone else out there has had a similar injury and if there is anything rehab specific to mtn biking. I want to return to mtn biking and not F it up. I ride most XC but mess around with all-mountian as much as my bike allows. Anyway, if anyone has suggestions / experience I would like to hear.


    Pic is my humerous bone sticking up out of socket.

    How's your shoulder doing? I'm only on 7th week after surgery, but From my limited experience, I don't think there are any MTB specific exercises, other than possibly strength/stretch exercises you can do.
