- Trail /fell running with broken shoulder?
I bust my shoulder in a crash last Sunday and the prospect of not getting back out for weeks is depressing so I’ve been thinking about starting running off road. I was just planning to strap my arm/shoulder up to stop it flapping around and give it some support while running.Posted 5 years ago
Does anyone know any reason not to do this?LardLoverMember
I had a broken scapula and clavicle after getting knocked off my bike. The thought of my shoulder bouncing around whilst running makes.me feel sick now……!
Saying that, if you think you can manage a trail run then go ahead. But be aware, as already mentioned, if you stumble and fall you may cause more injury.
Static trainer perhaps? I was comfortable on my bike on a turbo trainer even after 2 weeks.Posted 5 years agophunkmasterMember
I did some running with a broken shoulder, mainly on the trails I usually ride. Told the doctor when he asked if I had been doing any exercise and he wasn’t happy. He said, to quote, ‘if you fall on it again, you’re fu*ked’. Also, the bouncing around will hinder the fusing process.
He had a point.Posted 5 years ago
