I'm going back to 1964. I hurt my left shoulder in a pickup game. Woke up during the night in severe pain. I went to work and couldn't lift my arm at all. I called a Trainer for one of the hockey teams, Billie Hughes, who is now in the Manitoba Sports Hall of Fame and told him about it. He had me come over to his house at lunch time and felt around the shoulder. He said that I had a dislocation. He had me extend my arm out to my side and then swing it around to where the palm of my hand was at the middle of my chest. All the while, he was manipulating my shoulder and put it back in place. He then had me keep the position I was in and taped the shoulder. He told me to keep the tape on for two weeks. I did and I have never had a problem with my shoulder since.

Billie was so good at what he did, I called him Magic Fingers. One bit of advice that he gave me was, "Never let them stick a needle in any of your joints."
