Q: Im a 17 year old male who is moderately health and ive dislocated my shoulder around 5-6 times. after i went to the hospital after the 5th time the doctor said i had a partially torn ligament. after that i stopped playing sports and havent done anything strenuous to my shoulder in about 10 months. i want to start boxing but i dont want to start if my shoulder isnt in a good enough condition where if i strengthen my shoulder muscles i will be fine to do all the movement necessary in that sport. is it possible that my ligament has repaired on its own and if so how would i know
