I'm just watching this gif imagining if I tried to relocate someone's shoulder. I would probably end up dislocating it even more, or like ripping the shoulder off completely, then stare in shock at what I did.

[–]namuh_tsuj 180 points181 points  (11 children)

Honestly the only explanation I can think of for this is that boxers see this kind of thing regularly, in themselves and others, that’s fixing dislocations like this is second nature. I used to work with a guy who could relocate fingers in a matter of seconds. Interesting stuff.

[–]TheBold 96 points97 points  (1 child)

You know I wonder what kind of situations you’ve been in to know that your coworker is a finger relocating master.

Makes me think there’s probably a lot of people with cool secret skills around me, they just never had the chance to use them.

[–]namuh_tsuj 48 points49 points  (0 children)

A lot less cooler than you’d think. We were both athletic trainers for a university sports program. So dislocated fingers were a dime a dozen. He just knew how to put them back in place and I didn’t. But, needless to say, get to know people around you! You’d be wildly surprised by the hidden talents those around you might have! Good luck friend.

Seriously, get to an ER or Urgent care clinic and let them do it properly, otherwise you will be having at the least physical therapy in your future if not surgery!

[–]AGirlWthNoLife 286 points287 points  (38 children)

I’ve dislocated my wrist at least once a month since I was 15 and in gymnastics.. Sure if it’s your first time dislocating a joint, you should have it looked at and reset but a physician. But professional athletes like this are used to it, it’s really not a big deal.

[–]MadLintElf 86 points87 points  (15 children)

True, I've only dislocated my shoulder once in a car accident, the emt's dealt with my other injuries (much much worse) and let the ER physicians pop my shoulder into place.

I was so high on morphine when they did it I barely remember it and felt not a bit of pain.

But yea if it's happening all the time you probably get use to resetting it yourself or with the help of your coach.

[–]jimbelushiapplesauce 264 points265 points  (14 children)

well i hope you learned your lesson to quit driving while super high on morphine. it could have been much much worse.

[–]MadLintElf 52 points53 points  (9 children)

TIL if I’m in a car accident to quickly dislocate my shoulder before the EMTs arrive to get morphine.

[–]sharklops 5 points6 points  (1 child)

Why take chances? What if the airbag knocks you out? Dislocate it yourself every time you get in the car just in case

[–]Jimbojib 16 points17 points  (7 children)

Yep, let my coach put my shoulder back in, there hasn't been a day where it didn't hurt until it popped out again and I had it done in hospital.

Still hurts from time to time and it is definitely way weaker than the other side but I guess that could just be from not using it.

When I dislocate my shoulder all I have to do to put it back in is shrug my shoulders and roll them and it goes right back in

[–]misterdamra 95 points96 points  (37 children)

If you don't mind me asking, how often do you dislocate your shoulder?

[–]jeffm352 116 points117 points  (17 children)

Not the person you asked, but my shoulders are the same way. Once you dislocate your shoulder, it generally comes out of socket easier in the future. VA said I have "shoulder instability" and it comes out of socket a few times a month usually

[–]misterdamra 27 points28 points  (13 children)

Does it hurt or feel weird?

[–]Galactic 65 points66 points  (4 children)

I'm not the guy you asked but I have the same thing. It feels REALLY weird, but it only hurts when you pop it back into place. Used to hurt a lot, but not as much anymore.

[–]vince-anity 21 points22 points  (2 children)

It feels weird at first if you don't reduce it right away it will hurts enough to make you want to rip your arm off after 30 minutes to an hour. At least in my experience of 20+ times dislocating my shoulder. And it doesn't hurt at all being put back into place it's actually the best feeling in the world because all of your pain / discomfort is gone instantly. I don't use the method in the video though I generally use the last down on an elevated platform or bending at the waist and letting my arm hang down while holding a small weight. Before that method I did the lay on your back and rotate your arm over your head method. The hospital always used the latter method for me.

[–]sBarro77 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Same thing for me. For about 2-3 years after dislocating them it hurt really bad for just a second, mine would always pop back in on their own. It was really noticeable when I was sleeping and woulf semi-wake to adjust myself, put all my weight in my elbow and bam, shoulder popped. Thats what I would wake up to on a nightly basis which sucked for a while. Anymore though 8+ years later it very rarely pops out and when it does it only stings, the pain isn’t that bad.

Crazy how throwing a punch with his right arm dislocated his left.

[–]Rich-Dude 2389 points2390 points  (115 children)

It's because that "punch" was just terrible recess level garbage. He completely over relaxed that arm and it almost looks like he used it to torque his body.

[–]Scarlet-Witch 182 points183 points  (18 children)

I'm willing to bet that he's probably dislocated that arm before. Once you've dislocated a body part it becomes much easier to re-dislocate it later.

[–]PhyrexianOilLobbyist 95 points96 points  (16 children)

There's a guy I played soccer with who didn't take throw-ins because his arm popped out of its socket that easily. You could dislocate the thing with a good tug, and if you got some beers in the guy he'd let you do it.

[–]PostmanSteve 55 points56 points  (14 children)

I have something called voluntary anterior shoulder dislocation. (At least thats what the doctor told me, I described it to him, he said yep it's this thing and nothing was ever done.)

The dumbest shit will pop my shoulder out.. it goes back in somewhat easy, I usually just rotate my arm a certain way. In example, if I sleep with my arm behind my head I sometimes wake up with my shoulder out, and man does it suck to wake up like that.

[–]ManThatIsFucked 18 points19 points  (6 children)

I once knew a cool guy in high school.. I would ask him to do his shoulder thing. He could take his right hand, move it behind his head, place his palm on his left cheek so his middle finger is against his lips, and then he moved his hand under his neck and flat palmed the RIGHT cheek so his fingers pointed up towards his right eye. Fascinating

[–]The_Ultimate_Hope_ 22 points23 points  (3 children)

I’m having trouble visualizing exactly what that means

[–]ManThatIsFucked 22 points23 points  (2 children)

  1. Place your right hand on your right cheek, fingers facing the ceiling

  2. Then your fingers to face the wall behind you

  3. Slide your hand behind your head so your right hand fingers are facing to the left

4 slide your hand further to your left cheek so your fingers now point forward as your nose does

5... after the first four steps, this guy can go from step 4, move his right wrist under his neck, and place his right palm back on his right cheek

[–]Tanposka 75 points76 points  (15 children)

There was some really bad blood between them and what Hendo did is really looked down upon in general MMA community. There are plenty of fighters who don't that stuff. Like Nate Marquardt is known to never land a hit when he doesn't have to. Here and here for example.

[–]HallucinSTC 54 points55 points  (7 children)

Am I missing something in the second gif? I just see him whooping ass, no restraint.

[–]aer0des1gn 55 points56 points  (5 children)

He turns away before the ref intervenes. Not a great example though, I agree.

[–]Pluckerpluck 22 points23 points  (0 children)

Not the best example of restraint, but it is a good example of why slow motion affects perception.

In real time you'd see how most of that just flowed really quickly and how hard it would have been to know to stop.

Either way, he stopped before ref intervention, which is always a good sign.

[–]PhyrexianOilLobbyist 34 points35 points  (2 children)

The camera flash in that first gif is perfectly timed.

[–]phonomir 12 points13 points  (1 child)

He definitely took one or two shots he didn't need to in that second gif.

[–]RustedCorpse 10 points11 points  (0 children)

To be fair it was slowed a lot, he seemed to back off almost immediately after the guy goes limp.

[–]coolhand_chris 228 points229 points  (37 children)

Hendo said he wouldn’t have done it if it wasn’t bisping. There was some bad blood there. Hendo is awesome. The original team quest guys are all awesome.

[–]ACSlayter 83 points84 points  (10 children)

Was just going to explain this to OP. I love Dan Henderson. It would have been epic if he would have beat Bisping during their last fight....as long as he would have legit retired afterwards.

[–]richcaug 28 points29 points  (8 children)

Based on damage alone that was Dan's fight, but unfortunately Bisping legitimately won 3 rounds. Would have been a perfect send off to Dan's career had he won

[–]ACSlayter 20 points21 points  (4 children)

Agreed. It was a good fight. Bisping was so close to getting stopped, but he fought threw it and recovered. Two tough guys and Henderson is an all-time great. I think Bisping will be considered an all-time great as well because he stayed clean and fought a bunch of guys that weren't.

[–]givemealil 85 points86 points  (13 children)

I'm a huge MMA fan, and honestly this so-called explanation just makes it worse. It means that the hit was completely premeditated and with ill intent, rather than just getting caught up in the moment.

[–]NickTM 14 points15 points  (0 children)

Hendo said he wouldn’t have done it if it wasn’t bisping.

To be fair Hendo did it to everyone. He's notably bad for it.

[–]boundedwum 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Henderson has done those types of shots quite a few times though. His one on Hector Lombard was almost worse than the Bisping one.

[–]ersatz_substitutes 19 points20 points  (1 child)

Fortunately there are some examples of proper sportsmanship left. Here's a dude who choked his opponent unconscious then argued with the oblivious ref instead of pounding on the dude's face to get the ref to call it.

[–]WickedTemp 52 points53 points  (4 children)

That's fair, and I hate it when Refs don't know when to call the fight, but there's a bit of reasoning for why fighters pummel each other when one falls down.

Since MMA employs wrestling, there are a TON of excellent wrestlers in the sport who are better on the ground than they are on their feet. If they're on the ground, there's a real possibility they could wrestle their way to a win. So when the opponent's on the ground, the other guy won't stop swinging unless the ref calls it.

[–]fuckyouandfuckhimtoo 22 points23 points  (0 children)

I think /u/gnarvin's point is, in the above gif, it seems obvious that the guy on the ground is unconscious. Being able to recognize that in a split second in the ring is another story.

[–]A-Terrible-Username 43 points44 points  (3 children)

That gif is probably the mods egrgious example of that in all of MMA. The two guys had a bit of history and the winner knew he won with that first shot. In his own words he followed up with the elbow "just to shut him up"

But MMA fighters come back from the brink of unconsciousness all the time, so guys just go until the ref tells them to stop. In the heat of the moment with adrenaline running you can't know if that punch you just landed was enough for the ref to stop in. The only solution is to keep fighting

In the long run it's better for the losers health than the standing 8 count that boxing does

[–]PhyrexianOilLobbyist 8 points9 points  (0 children)

In his own words he followed up with the elbow "just to shut him up"

If he was trying to make a statement, that second shot made sure the guy didn't remember it.

[–]Rich-Dude 11 points12 points  (5 children)

And that is what an overhand right is supposed to look like. Hendo also set that one up with a leg kick.

[–]Skepticsnail 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Terrible recess level garbage.

Adding this to my lexicon.

[–]Needless-To-Say 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Or the left was already dislocated before he threw the right. Notice that he throws a left first.

[–]Needless-To-Say 12 points13 points  (6 children)

He throws the left first and probably dislocates it right away. The right looks so awkward because he cant balance with the left.

[–]Tikki123 7 points8 points  (7 children)

I dislocated my shoulder 9 times in less than 12 months and it's rarely predictable. Also if he had dislocated his shoulder before, it's more likely to do it again. It's also more likely to break, which I've done thrice lol

[–]djchair 2414 points2415 points  (107 children)

As a (lapsed) certified first responder, it's strongly recommended to not do this unless you have the training (or if it's a real emergency.)

It's possible to do further damage to the person you're trying to help, like pinching a nerve.

With all that said, kudos to both these gents on how to be civil and sportsman-like.

Edit: For those wondering why a pinched nerve is bad; I meant literally pinching the nerve between two bones and causing irreversible damage. I guess I could have warned that it's also very possible to damage the axillary artery which routes blood to your arm... that too would be super bad to damage as well.

I remember hearing a story in a similar thread about a soccer player who dislocated their leg from their pelvis and another player tried to pop it back in for them. Unfortunately the guy's testicle shifted during the ordeal and his leg got popped back into place and his ball got crushed. So yah I'll be seeing a professional.

[–]pileofburningchairs 47 points48 points  (2 children)

Whether or not it's fake, I can tell you from experience that having a dislocated pelvis re-set is some of the worst pain you'll feel. It took three nurses about 20 seconds to put mine back. However, when that socket is back in place it is like a shot of morphine.

[–]2mice 30 points31 points  (0 children)

think it might be urban myth. heard similar story like 20 years ago about a soccer player throwing his leg out of socket while doing a bicycle kick, then when he hit the ground the leg when back into its socket crushing his ball with it.

edit: spelling

[–]booze_clues 52 points53 points  (11 children)

I’ve seen enough variations of this that I really doubt it’s real. How does your testicle even get into your hip joint?

[–]postmodest 50 points51 points  (4 children)

It'd have to climb all the way back up through your pelvic floor, duck past your pubic bone, snake its way along the back of your ischium, hide out without you noticing that it's six inches from its sackbuddy, then get squished.

I mean, if your testicle somehow moves far enough from your nutsack that it's in your hip socket, it's a goner anyway.

[–]booze_clues 10 points11 points  (3 children)

Don’t most people have whatever is right above the testicles (pelvic floor? Idk) seal after puberty, which is why most people don’t have them go back inside them after they drop.

How would you then relocate a shoulder? I dislocted mine half a year ago, if it should happen again, what would you recommend doing? Should I go to the hospital? Or try to get it done myself/with some help?

[–]Triplecrowner 40 points41 points  (5 children)

You should go to the doctor, but as another lapsed (wilderness) first responder, I can answer this. You have someone provide traction while the arm is bent at the elbow and they slowly move it back and forth like the person is throwing a baseball.

Edit: The patient will know when it's back in. There will be an orgasmic lack of pain.

[–]-topher 23 points24 points  (4 children)

You have to do it very shortly after dislocation. While the adrenaline is strong and the pain is dampened. Once you wait too long your shoulder can seize up and tighten and becomes wayyyy too painful to move

[–]-topher 5 points6 points  (0 children)

[–]invdur 10 points11 points  (1 child)

Since no one was able to answer this, this is what my doctor told me to do: If avoidable, don't let another person do it, and do it yourself. Sit on the ground, kind of like in a fetal position, and grab your hand from your dislocated shoulder with your healthy one, put them around one knee, and pull yourself back, - slowly or not, doesn't really matter.

Still, one should see a physician on this, because you have to retrain your arm or it WILL happen again and again.

edit: yes, do it yourself and then go to the hospital.

It's still there man. This guy chokes out his opponent and immediately tends to him to make sure he is ok https://youtu.be/mscfjW7zsfw?t=34s

In this video the guy in white fought a last minute replacement who was not on his level, and he was beating the shit out of him. He realises the ref isn't going to stop it and his opponent is not going to quit (despite realistically having no chance) so he taps out and gives his opponent the win in order to save him from unnecessary damage. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RyBZQlJ8VeA

It's not like this was in the 19th century...

I just watched a gif not long ago about an MMA match where one fighter put the other fighters shoulder back in place so they could continue fighting. It was awesome!

[–]IAmKnightSolaire 306 points307 points  (50 children)

Especially in fighting. Boxing and UFC have unbelievably bad sportsmanship because that's what gets views on TV.

[–]NotRalphNader 356 points357 points  (34 children)

UFC has great sportsmanship unless you're referring to leading up to the fight and that is an act so...Of course there are exceptions as well but generally UFC and MMA is a very respect driven sport.

[–]poopellar 50 points51 points  (8 children)

I've rarely seen a fight where the fighters don't have respect for their opponents. I thought it was kinda obvious the shit talk done pre show is well, just for show.

[–]MazzoMilo 110 points111 points  (17 children)

A lot of what you see is the “McGregor Effect” people see what gets ratings (read:$$$) and try to imitate it because fighting is a shitty, grueling line of work in a lot of ways and most fighters have a very short shelf life.

[–]TheBorkotik 56 points57 points  (5 children)

It's been the go to way to sell fights long, long before McGregor

[–]AerThreepwood 13 points14 points  (5 children)

I thought the "McGregor Effect" was when you wouldn't ever defend your belt despite having some serious contenders in your division.

[–]MentalF0rtitude 46 points47 points  (1 child)

Almost after every UFC match, the opponents hug and give hand shakes to each other and their opposing corners. There is a great deal of sportsmanship showcased, but with every sport.. there are the bad apples that get the most attention

All the trash talk before the match gets media views, but don't let that distract you from how the fighters act after the match is fought and done

You have no idea what you’re talking about

This is one one MMA sportsmanship compilation there are many others https://youtu.be/9BHKJos5DnA

Edit - more

[–]_ChestHair_ 19 points20 points  (0 children)

Lol you clearly don't watch MMA if you think it's unsportsman

[–]sooner_or_later 6 points7 points  (0 children)

I disagree. Especially in combat sports there is a ton of sportsmanship. It gets shaded because they have to sell the fight which give the impression of poor sportsmanship, but there is a ton of respect amongst the athletes.

He immediately jumped up like, "Oh fuck we good. It's fixed."

[–]goatsee_goat 25 points26 points  (1 child)

That's a bro.

[–]Jejoisland 10 points11 points  (0 children)

That´s a fact!

[–]krfslb 18 points19 points  (5 children)

kinda curious about the outcome of the fight now, anyone's got a full video?

[–]My_Maz3 16 points17 points  (2 children)

He should stop fighting and become a doctor, that seemed so easy

[–]twinspiritradio 90 points91 points  (1 child)

He actually stopped being a doctor and became a fighter.

[–]LYossarian13 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Better pay, less work. Recovery time can be a bitch though.

[–]Gmania27 73 points74 points  (1 child)

Well, that was nice of him.

Canadian, probably.

[–]QwopperFlopper 76 points77 points  (17 children)

This is dangerous to do because it can pinch a vein in between the ball and cup

[–]ferretnoise 20 points21 points  (2 children)

That's not true. The main risks with shoulder reduction are axillary nerve damage, Bankhart fractures, and hill-sachs deformities. Vascular damage is not a common issue with anterior shoulder dislocations. Source: am doctor. I reduce shoulders all the time.

[–]UltraSTONED 26 points27 points  (10 children)


[–]QwopperFlopper 16 points17 points  (9 children)

yeah id imagine it wouldn't feel too great. best to let a professional do it if you can wait.

[–]Gonzostewie 20 points21 points  (7 children)

There's nothing like the sweet relief when you shoulder slides back into place.

It goes like this: Pops out. Pain & profanity for a second.

Walk around for a second. Pain wanes a bit

Pop it back in. Throbbing/stabbing pain

Source: Chronic shoulder problems for the duration of my teenage years. My shoulder was dislocated about once a month from 15-20yrs old. I put it back myself all the time.

[–]blackflag209 4 points5 points  (0 children)

To be fair the guy used to be a doctor

[–]DaJayWalk 13 points14 points  (3 children)

That’s what you want to see in a fight good sportsmanship and mutual respect it’s a vicious sport but that doesn’t mean you have to be a vicious person

[–]mygeorgeiscurious 14 points15 points  (4 children)

I popped mine out during a football game I high school, my coach asked me if I school still play. I told him fuck no.

Coach tells me there's two things we can do, I can sling it up and I won't be able to play for a while or he could just do this

As he said that, he jerked my shoulder just like this video and I was back next quarter. What a disgusting feeling though.

[–]steether 11 points12 points  (1 child)

That respect afterwards, peach

[–]LinkTheMlgElf 5 points6 points  (0 children)

This is what true sportsmanship looks like

[–]crystalshipsdripping 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Never reduce a dislocation by yanking it! It causes a ton of damage to the tissues, and can severe the nerves in your arm. Traction should be pulled slowly and gently using a small weight while the person lies elevated on their stomach.

Alternatively, you can bring the arm up and out to the side as if they are going to pitch a baseball, while pulling gentle traction away from the body.

[–]Fuck_you_Layla 4 points5 points  (2 children)

After this helps happens for the first time, does it become easier to happen again ?

[–]Gonzostewie 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Yes. I had shoulder problems from 15-20yrs old until I finally had surgery. My shoulder was dislocated about once a month over those 5 years, sometimes more, sometimes less, sometimes multiple times a week. It popped out doing just about anything. Once I even rolled over in my sleep awkwardly & dislocated it. I'm 36yrs old and can throw as well as a 8yo girl because of my limited range of motion.

My orthopedist showed me photos my bones from the surgery & I actually had a groove worn in the ball of my humerus from it grinding on my collar bone.

[–]kjwkrupa 5 points6 points  (0 children)

You call that a fookin punch??

[–]IShavedMyNutsForThis 4 points5 points  (3 children)

As someone who dislocated my shoulder: can confirm, it really is that easy for it to just pop out of place. I had it pop out while kicking a ball once.
