Paulo Avelino dislocates shoulder in motorcycle accident

Kapamilya actor Paulo Avelino took to Instagram to share that he will be undergoing physical therapy after he sustained injury in a motorcycle accident.

The 30-year-old actor said that he dislocated his right shoulder in a low side crash.

Avelino said that he had an accident while riding a motorcycle before, but this is the first time that he dislocated his shoulder.

“Tuason Racing and the event organizers immediately rushed me to the hospital where they were able to pop my shoulder back in (hurt even more) but immediately felt relief over my right shoulder,” he shared.

The actor also said that his shoulder did not hinder him to back to the track and go for a few more laps.

“Upon checking the extent of the mobility of my shoulder I asked if I could go back to the track and after going for a few laps, Voila! I am still fully capable of riding, but definitely at a slower pace due to minimal discomfort on my right shoulder,” he said.

Avelino also proudly shared that he was able to finish his whole course at the California Superbike School Philippines, a Parañaque-based center that trains riders in cornering motorcycles.

He also shared what he had learned from the accident.

Avelino said: “Sometimes we just have to slow down, assess what we’ve been doing wrong, swallow your pride and accept our mistakes. Then finally, come out as a better person. Full speed ahead!”

Yes, I did crash again and although it was a low side crash, unfortunately I dislocated my right shoulder for the first time (It was painful btw). Tuason Racing and the event organizers immediately rushed me to the hospital where they were able to pop my shoulder back in (hurt even more) but immediately felt relief over my right shoulder. Upon checking the extent of the mobility of my shoulder I asked if I could go back to the track and after going for a few laps, Voila! I am still fully capable of riding, but definitely at a slower pace due to minimal discomfort on my right shoulder. I was able to finish my whole CSSPH course for this year, level 3 and 4. Sometimes we just have to slow down, assess what We've been doing wrong, swallow your pride and accept our mistakes. Then finally, come out as a better person. Full speed ahead! @californiasuperbikeschoolph @wheeltek_official @tuasonracing @theeuromonkeys
