Just like you, I injured my shoulder. After months of almost unbearable pain, I eventually stumbled across a solution that can stop shoulder pain for good, and now I’m back to normal life, pain free. Here’s how it all happened…
It was a normal Tuesday, and I was working out at the gym. Everything was going fine, but then suddenly I felt what can only be described as a "twang" in the back of my left shoulder.
Over the next few days, I developed a constant, nagging, sharp ache. I couldn’t even sit properly without it bothering me. I couldn’t get comfortable in bed, I couldn’t lift my arm overhead, I couldn’t carry shopping bags… basically, I couldn’t do everything I normally do.
My doctor diagnosed me with a minor strain, and prescribed rest with anti-inflammatory medication, and sent me home.
Fast forward four weeks, and nothing had changed – I was still in a lot of pain, with poor mobility and no sign of any solution!
For weeks, I spent hours every day digging through medical and sports literature, talking to medical experts, professional athletes and anyone I could find that had any experience of shoulder and rotator cuff injuries, all the while struggling through day to day life with a painful and irritating shoulder.
To my surprise, I learned that healing a shoulder injury is actually easy to do, by yourself, at home.
You don’t need any special equipment, and in most cases you can completely avoid surgery. All it takes is a special set of stretches and exercises to target the source of your pain, performed in the correct order, and you can quickly and easily unlock a pain-free shoulder!
You see, if you can combat the source of the pain, the pain itself will naturally disappear. The pain only exists as a symptom of an internal problem, and if that problem is addressed through these simple techniques, your symptoms and your pain will vanish!
Once I had discovered enough about my condition and how to go about fixing it, I created my own comprehensive rehabilitation program, taking on the advice of dozens of health professionals, experienced strength training athletes and sports enthusiasts.
It was incredible! I went from being almost crippled in pain and with a completely useless shoulder, to waking up in the morning feeling refreshed, well slept and ready for another day. I started using my arm again, carrying shopping and reaching high shelves without any trouble.
I couldn’t believe it was this easy to do, and it only took me a few minutes each day. Because I had created the ultimate rehabilitation routine, success was virtually guaranteed.
As the days passed and my home rehabilitation sessions progressed, I began to think about what might happen after I was finished with the rehab.
Maybe I could go swimming, or play tennis, or go back to training in the gym. Perhaps I could go back to playing baseball, or maybe even something like rock climbing. In short, I could go back to normal, just like I was before the pain started.
All thanks to a few simple stretches, exercises and easy treatments that anyone can do at home in just a few minutes.
Shortly after all this happened, one of my buddies got in touch. He’s a pitcher for a local baseball team, and he had some pain in his shoulder after a paricularly heavy training session.
He told me he hadn’t warmed up properly before training, had thrown a few awkward pitches and now had a sharp, painful stinging sensation in his shoulder which wouldn’t go away. He wanted some advice on what to do.
I gave him a few tips, described some of the stretches and exercises I’d learned, and laid out a simple, step by step rehab program to follow for the next 4 weeks, just like I had done previously.
The next month, he gave me a call. His shoulder had healed completely, was 100% pain free, supple and he was back to pitching his best.
His recovery (and mine!) was all thanks to the simple techniques I’d learned about a few weeks earlier.
Once people began to hear about his recovery, they started to get in touch to ask for my advice on their own injuries. At first I answered all the questions individually, creating custom step-by-step rehab programs for them, but it quickly became far too time consuming.
Instead, I decided I could help more people by creating a guide which was comprehensive enough to cover pain relief for all sorts of shoulder injuries, including:
PAIN RELIEF – First and foremost, it will help completely eliminate any pain you are experiencing in your shoulder. As you know, and as I know from personal experience, the pain is the worst part about a shoulder injury, and can seriously affect your lifestyle and mood if left untreated.
So the most important thing, and the main focus of the book, is stopping the pain through basic home treatments, simple stretching and exercising to stimulate the healing process and regain flexibility, mobility and strength in the shoulder.
A secondary goal, which is important only after you’ve stopped the pain that’s bothering you now, is INJURY PREVENTION – through simple techniques designed to strengthen and protect the shoulder. This isn’t about bodybuilding, it’s about building core strength and conditioning your shoulder so it can cope with day to day activities and sports with ease.
While I was writing this book, I contacted many of the experts I had previously consulted with to get them to help and contribute, and compiled everything into a step by step guide, in simple terms that ANYONE can use.
If you’ve suffered a minor shoulder injury, whether that’s a rotator cuff strain, rotator cuff tear, tendonitis, impingement, bursitis, freezing or frozen shoulder or general muscular pain in the shoulder, then ‘Shoulder Pain NO MORE’ can help you treat and stop your pain.
All you’ve got to do is…
