A Wii Ouchie: Tennis Shoulder

OMG, I just hurt myself playing Wii Tennis. Not just the usual soreness, either. I was going for a shot and my arm reached out at a bad angle. I heard a sound that joints should not make. I thought it was a temporary thing but it kept hurting so I had to quit playing after a few more games.

My right shoulder is vulnerable to injury because it suffered dislocation a few years ago. I had surgery on it which has stabilized it a lot. However, since I am very flexible, the surgeon didn’t tighten me as much as he would an average person because then I would be assymetrical with regards to my arms’ flexibility and range-of-motion.

Good thing it wasn’t real tennis or I would have suffered worse damage and pain. eek.
