Is this the most frustrating diagnosis or am I not doing something right.I am told to strengthen the shoulder and I do so. I then proceed to injure it again during hockey, and then I am back to square one.I strengthen during the off-season with no subluxations, but when it comes to hockey it is bound to happen once a season. It then procedes to cause problems all year long.Are surgeries a viable option… I am running out of ideas and getting frustrated. Please tell me there is someone out there who has this same problem?

It doesn’t sound like a strength issue.
When playing is your upper body in an organized position? And are you able to maintain a stabilized organized position through movement?
I recommend watching this webinar The Athletic Shoulder: Anatomy, Physiology & Function to increase your knowledge and understanding of the shoulder.
Doesn’t sound like this is a surgery situation.
Have you experienced trauma to your shoulder?
Do you have restrictions within your rom, internal/external rotation?

to add to Kaitlin’s comment about good position – say when you swing at a puck, is your shoulder drifting forward and out of position as you swing? So making sure you can keep your shoulder in a good position when you are manipulating your hockey stick is important. You swing the stick too often with effort in a bad position and you’ll hurt your shoulder for sure.this assumes you’re not talking about getting hit/checked into a shoulder injury…

Generally this happens under 2 conditions:
1. I fall on an outstretched hand. Can be an innocent fall.
2. My shoulder gets up mid range when rubbing an opponent out.
Its not from big hits or shooting.

Hmm what comes to mind is rebound training for upper body force absorption. It would be things like clapping push ups, or bench press rebounds with a 45lb bar. I am not familiar with details but know of some people who train for that. I can point you to them if you like.
