Fix My Shoulder

Genre: Health & Fitness

The shoulder is the most mobile joint in the body. It enjoys an amazing range of motion; it can rotate 360 degrees and can extend upward, sideways, across the body, outward, inward, every which way. That makes it the most useful joint we have, and, not surprisingly, we use it the most. Lifting, pushing, pulling, throwing, catching, hugging: the shoulder experiences more motion than any other joint. So it is perhaps not surprising that, sooner or later, it becomes overtaxed—fatigued. After all, as with anything, if you keep applying the same pressure over and over, the strength and stability of the structure being pressured will wear down. That’s what happens to the shoulder, and when it does, it’s not only painful; it can also stop you in your tracks, limiting your ability to do even simple things you’re used to doing. The truth is that if you’ve never felt any kind of shoulder pain whatsoever, the chances are good that as you grow older, you will. Our bodies tend to lose muscle and bone mass as we age, and we become more susceptible to the aches and pains that may result. But neither the weakness nor the pain is inevitable. The shoulder can be fixed, and the pain can go away. First, there’s a fix that cures the weakness and ends the pain. But there are also things you can do to prevent injury or strain in the first place, so that you never have to lose the strength, stability, and range of motion of the shoulder at all. Fix My Shoulder explores the anatomy and function of the shoulder, methods of preventing pain and injury, and treatments for healing that anyone can implement for better shoulder health and function.

The Multifidus Back Pain Solution

Author: Jim Johnson
Publisher: New Harbinger Publications
ISBN: 1572242787
Release Date: 2002
Genre: Family & Relationships

Based on breakthrough results from the newest scientifically proven research, this guide offers back-pain sufferers real relief--simple exercises that target the exact muscles that have been newly identified to be the source of most back pain. If you are one of the millions who suffer from recurring back pain, and have found that your attempts at complicated and time-consuming exercise programs and treatments have not helped, it's time to learn the simple techniques that strengthen the specific muscles that are at the root of your pain. Start living free from pain now! When physical therapist Jim Johnson reviewed the back-pain studies in peer-reviewed medical journals published over the past fifteen years, he found that the research suggested that a specific set of muscles played a key role in a great majority of back-pain incidences. The results showed that most back-pain sufferers have undeveloped multifidus (mull-tiff-i-dus) muscles. These muscles connect the spinal vertebrae together and play a subtle, but critical, role in bending and twisting motions of the back. If they are weak, inflamed, or in spasm, they can cause chronic back pain. In response to these findings, Johnson devised a simple series of exercises that focus on strengthening the multifidus muscles--and had fabulous results in reducing back pain for a variety of patients.

The Shoulder Patients Handbook

Genre: Health & Fitness

This handbook is the result of the countless conversations I’ve had with my patients about their rotator cuff injuries and other common shoulder problems. Their desire to understand their injury and the how to heal from that injury is the inspiration for this handbook. I’ve written it in everyday language to convey basic terms and concepts. As such, it is a simplification; yet it is from these basic, simple concepts that injuries are best understood. Understanding the basics of your injury, treatment, and process of healing will help ease your anxiety and focus your energy on getting well. This book is the bridge to the basic concepts and treatment principles that you must learn and understand in order to have a meaningful conversation with your doctor. There are many ways to treat shoulder pain and injuries. There are numerous books for patients published on the rotator cuff by chiropractors, physical therapists, and yoga teachers. Yet there are none published by shoulder surgeons for their patients. My goal for each and every patient is that he or she heals and gets back to all the activities in his or her life in the safest, most efficient way. Many times, the answer is not surgery. However, in rotator cuff problems, particularly tendon tears, surgery at some point is very often the correct tool to help patients return to their previous level of activity. Most patients will follow a very predictable path as they heal from their injury. I call it the “Rotator Cuff Pathway.” When patients understand the basics of their injury and the treatment, there is much less fear and anxiety. Most find the predictability of the pathway reassuring. Then they are free to focus their energy on healing and getting well.
