So, I have some what of a shitty situation. A few months ago, I took a hard fall at work and dislocated my shoulder. I work in a food production facility, specifically a bakery, which is a very physical job.
We have a closed-door hallway where employees pass through to wash their hands and walk through shoe/boot sanitizer. Very slippery, but of course there is a rubber mat and we wear non-slip shoes. One of my managers was wheeling a barrel of tomato sauce (yes, a barrel) with a hand cart, so naturally I held the door open for him. Now, you can't push this cart over the rubber mat, so it needs to get moved. I hold the door open, then use my foot to move the mat over a bit. In doin this, my foot slipped and I practically fell head over heels onto my left shoulder, dislocating it. Boss recognized the dislocation, he's had one before. He thinks it's a good idea to snap it back in, I'm in a lot of pain just going with it. He does it. I fill out a report and stay maybe an hour before the pain is too much to work.
I go to urgent care the following day. I was given modified duties for a week and sent on my way with my WSIB form (Workers Safety Insurance Board). No medication, no tests, I was offered Physiotherapy but declined because I didn't think it would be nessecary.
So, that's the background. Now, my shoulder has come out on three seperate occasions doing normal things. The first time I'm not sure what I was doing. The second time I was actually asleep when it happened, I had my arms under my pillows and I was laying on my stomach. I guess I stretched the wrong way and it dislocated. It immediately went back in when I tried forcing the arm to move.
The second time I was laying in bed, on my back, awake and watching a show. I went to reach for something on my bedside table and it dislocated once again, more painful harder to get back in.
What can I do now? It's been months since it happened, untreated, now it can affect my job because it becomes pretty sore during phsyical work after recurring dislocations and general soreness regardless.
