After a thorough physical examination, including x-rays, my Doctor diagnosed my arm and shoulder pain as a rotator cuff tear and naturally suggested immediate surgery. ?The Ultimate Rotator Cuff Training Guide? by Physical Therapist Brian Schiff has so far saved me from having to go through that surgery.
After I heard the Doctor?s diagnosis and suggestion, I searched the library and the internet for non-surgical solutions. I may have found a possible answer. I started using Brian Schiff?s Training Guide and followed his very explicit directions for the stretching, range of motion moves and exercises. I am in week 2 of a 4-6 week regime and have noticed a marked improvement.
In this article I am attempting to explain how this Training Guide has worked for me and would suggest that you to try this method before considering surgery.
Brian Schiff graduated from The Ohio State University in 1996 with a Bachelor of Science degree of Physical Therapy in Allied Health Professions. Since then, he has practiced as a licensed physical therapist specializing in sports medicine.? Through the National Strength and Conditioning Association, Brian became a certified strength and conditioning specialist (CSCS) in 1998.
By doing the exercises in ?The Ultimate Rotator Cuff Training Guide?, I came to understand that it was a highly efficient system for relieving pain in the shoulder. Brian Schiff put together the guide for people with frozen shoulder, osteoarthritis, Rotator Cuff tendonitis, Rotator Cuff tears, impingement or bursitis.
Don?t be intimidated by the fancy words, Brian explains what they all mean and how to use the exercises to alleviate pain. He goes into a detailed description of each particular problem and how to best use the different exercises to your greatest advantage.
There is one disadvantage. It is recommended that the stretching and range of motion moves be done everyday. To some this may seem daunting, but it is definitely worth it to work this into your daily schedule. This is not a magic pill; it will take at least 4-6 weeks to start feeling the relief from your regular routine.
In the Ultimate Rotator Guide one of its most valued points is that Brain doesn?t just write out how to do each motion, he has pictures of him actually performing each move. This is extremely helpful in showing you the right form for each exercise. The right form is essential in making the motions work for you. So, not only does he outline how to do the moves in the eBook, he has added pictures in all aspects of each move. In the very beginning of the eBook he answers frequently asked questions that he knows from experience.
Another invaluable part of getting his eBook is that if you have any other questions you can email him. I did, and he always got back to me on the same day.
The Ultimate Rotator Guide is a truly concise map to overcoming shoulder pain. The eBook logically and easily pulls you through the process of using these exercises to eliminate pain in an attempt to avoid shoulder surgery.
Do not think this will instantly heal you, it will take practice. You must do the exercises on a consistent basis. It is critical that you follow the directions to achieve your goal of a pain free shoulder.
When I first started the program I thought that it was impossible to take this much time everyday. However, after the first week when I had practiced the moves it didn?t take nearly as much time as in the beginning. I was able to smoothly do all the moves in less than thirty minutes.
Normally there are always some weaknesses in eBooks but I couldn?t find any in the Ultimate Rotator Guide. My experience is that it is taking away most of my Rotator Cuff pain and is keeping me away from Rotator Cuff surgery. Remember, I am in week two and much has been accomplished.
Wouldn?t you use a program that would take away most, if not all of your shoulder pain? If you want to learn how to strengthen your shoulder and relieve your aching I would highly recommend ?The Ultimate Rotator Training Guide?. In fact, I give it 9 out of 10. I can?t thank Brian enough for supplying this valuable information and hopefully saving me from surgery.
