Shoulder Surgery In Redding

For Ben Weaver, football has been a major focus for most of his life. In fact, he calls himself a “Football Nerd”. As a kid he loved to toss the ball around with his siblings, he played in high school and college and even played on a semi-pro team while working at his current job as Assistant Coach at Shasta College. So when Ben dislocated and separated his shoulder and could no longer throw the ball to his team during practice, he went right to Dr. Schillen at Shasta Orthopaedics who found he had a torn labrum, torn rotator cuff and a bone chip in his shoulder. At the time Ben’s wife had a baby on the way so Ben delayed the operation for 6 months.

After losing some weight and learning how to do all the exercises properly he was approached by a Crossfit coach who encouraged him to join the 2013 Reebok Crossfit Open, a worldwide competition where challengers all perform the same five exercises and submit their scores online in real time. Says Henson “I was surprised because here I am, a guy over 60 who is just trying to get into shape and I’m being asked to compete against other men in my age group from all over the world.”
