At 16, William broke his collarbone in an ice hockey accident. However, the injury had in fact caused more damage than just this. After a series of further injuries, (shoulder separations and dislocations) the pain and weakness in his shoulder were too great to ignore. He couldn’t pick up his backpack, or throw a football without pain. Dr. Stone stitched up his labrum and rotator cuff, drained the excess fluid, and removed a bone fragment. The first day after surgery, William noticed that his shoulder felt “more a part of my shoulder than it had been in three years”.
