Unless you just got in a terrible car accident — or had some other form of severe trauma take place — it’s a good bet you don’t have to be in shoulder pain. The posture ‘inside’ your shoulder may be off, causing abnormal pressures, wear, and tear to take place on ligaments, tendons, and capsules. Over time, this causes small amounts of pain that can flare, but most often feel like a ‘normal’ part of aging. Interestingly, this isn’t "normal" at all.
I tore both my labrums a total of five times, developed severe tendonitis in both shoulders, and stretched out the capsule that holds my shoulder together; that was before, and this is now. My name is Dr. Kareem Samhouri, and I’m a Doctor of Physical Therapy, Kinesiologist, and caring friend. With some of the worst genetic history imaginable, and an insatiable desire to heal my mother, I began towards Physical Therapy. Little did I know that my own shoulders would break down along the way, and I’d have to fix them. I’m grateful for my education, clinical instructors, and experience to have the opportunity to teach you today.
You see, I’m motivated to help you, and I always have been. You’re in luck, because I’ve taken a personal interest in shoulder injuries, beyond just about anything else.
WARNING: When you read below, this may seem like an oversimplification of shoulder injuries, but my philosophy is to first make your shoulder as healthy as possible, and then see what pain or injury might be leftover. This way, you don’t end up getting surgery unnecessarily, like I almost did.
95% or more of the shoulder pain I’ve seen in patients does not have to be there. Often times, people don’t know when to see a doctor, when to get an image, when to take medication or avoid it altogether, and what they should/shouldn’t do in order to ‘rest’ their shoulder and help it feel better. For these reasons, I wrote Shoulder Injury Guide. It’s a solution to the mystery, a plan to heal every major type of shoulder injury start to finish, and a guide on when to go the doctor and what to expect.
With that said, I’m 100% on your side, and I’m ready to help you eliminate shoulder pain, once and for all. On the next page, you’ll see a three minute video that will teach you the absolute fastest way I know how to get out of shoulder pain and keep the pain away:
