  1. Thanks so much for your advice everyone, I really appreciate it. I'm in my late 20s. Sorry to hear about your injury Craddock, that sounds awful. Glad to hear you manage to keep doing stuff despite the surgeries! Thanks so much for your post.
  2. I was supposed to be doing my first every skydive, a tandem skydive, but three weeks ago I dislocated my shoulder for the first time skiing. It was fairly pain-free, went back in easily and my range of movement is improving everyday. However I really don't want to dislocate my shoulder again as there are other sports I want to do, and so at the very least I will do all my physio, wait 6 months and consult my doctor before doing a tandem dive. However I'm also wondering if there's anything that can be done to reduce the risk? I've seen some posts here that suggest you can hold on to the straps and keep your elbows in rather than having your arms out. Is this good advice? Are most skydiving places (UK) likely to allow this? Many thanks in advance for your help! Heather
