"A blessing in disguise..."
In December 2013, I injured my shoulder, very unlucky I ripped my Rotatorcuff and Biceptendon.
A part of the cartilage was damaged and I broke my collarbone, they had to repair my shoulder with an operation that took 2 hours.
After surgery I had to recover for 3 months, I did Physiotherapy and massage 3 times per week, a very intense rehabilitation that started with small movements and as time went by the movements got more complex and more difficult. I focused on pulling and pushing and also activation and stabilization of the joint and the surrounding muscles.
After 15 weeks the doctor said my therapy was finished and I can do all the physical activity that I was used to doing.
I felt unsatisfied as I was still weak in the shoulder and had ongoing pain. So I had to look for different options to continue my recovery.
I started working with the resistance bands and I developed the Shoulder Academy program with help of my friend and osteopath Stan Mostard.
Getting my shovels back on the level before surgery, took daily exercise, and I still use the program for stabilization and strength.
Finally since summer 2015 I am free of pain, but it took a long time to recover all separate muscles of the shoulder joint.
Now, I would love to help you recover from injury or simply get your shoulders stronger and ready for hard work!
