My Dislocated-Broken Arm… One Year Update


One year ago this week I dislocated and broke my arm during a weekend visit to Tulum.

This will be my very last update about my arm. For the most part it feels normal. Sometimes there is some clicking and clacking and it does feel a little odd when I do certain movements.

Compare these two pictures to the ones in this post and you will see the progress I have made! At one point the doctor told me that I might not be able to touch hands above my head anymore, but as you can see…I can!

I hope that weight training and stretching will help to improve the second position even more. I also hope to make another weekend visit to Tulum soon, one without any accidents!
