Excellent Shoulder Rehab Protocol
I was discussing shoulder injuries with a Sports Psych/Exercise Science Student I'm mentoring at work, as my right shoulder doesn't have full ROM due to various grappling related injuries.
He downloaded the attached document for me from the University library. He's had excellent results with it himself (he's a BB Judoka).
The thing that really stands out for me was when he asked me what I do after injuries at training. Basically, I responded, I take it easy, and wait for recovery, and once I feel safe, I go back to training. He said that the majority of martial artists he's asked answer that question exactly the same way. Very rarely do people actually spend time rehabbing the injury properly, and as a result, make things worse over the long run.
Just thought I'd share the Programme, as shoulder injuries are common to grapplers, and other MAists, and the shoulder can be problematic to rehab.
There's a shoulder rehab protocol, and strength building exercises. There's also an informative section on Steroids and their role in the rehabilitation of shoulder injuries.
