Fell during snowboarding, resulted in left dislocated shoulder. Taken by ambulance to hospital after receiving a Morphine shot. At the hospital, taken an X-ray where a chipped bone was identified. Received a Versed shot to allow for the doc to manipulate the shoulder back into place. The injury included a stretched back deltoid nerve that rendered the back deltoid muscle nonoperational for a period of 4 months following the injury. Physical therapy administered for a period of 3 months following injury. Recovery took about a year where the shoulder felt normal, except for sensitivity to weather changes that lasted for a couple of years afterwards.
