    Default Self Rehab Resources

    Hey Party,

    I don't post much on the forums (because of my limited knowledge), but I do read a lot and now I need your advice/suggestion. It goes without saying that I already search this forum.

    I'm having some nagging issues with my neck/shoulder for more than a year now. The pain is located somewhere around Scalene Muscles, near Clavicula (my best guess).

    Various doctors gave their best shots, did nothing and now I'm out of options - I have to investigate the issue myself.

    Could you recommend some books/videos on rehab specifically - locating and solving the problem? I'm open to all suggestions.

    Every input is very much appreciated and thank you in advance!



    Additional info:
    I have most of Pavel's book;
    X-ray and ultrasound results are fine;
    Massage did nothing;
    Various topically applied meds did nothing;
    I have some interesting symptoms that other people don't seem to mention;

    You might try Gray Cook and Brett Jones's Secrets of the Shoulder, offered on the DD site.

    Most advise on a forum about these sort of things are near useless. Not enough info is provided so giving advise would be just shooting in the dark.

    Shoulder injuries take a LONG time to heal. A year or more. Repeated activity that causes pain only digs you a deeper hole to climb out of. If you are continuing to do things that aggravate the pain you need to stop.

    I found arm-bars and TGUs with light weights very helpful for my recovery. These drills work for some people - not all - so give it a try. Do shoulder mobility drills. Avoid any lifting that produces pain. Youtube has alot of ideas for shoulder re-hab and mobility. Try some out, adapt or discard as you go (shotgun approach) Find out what works FOR YOU.... JUST DO NOT RE-INJURE YOURSELF.

    If you can see an FMS movement specialist. Learn why you got injured so you won't repeat it.

    Pavel has some dvds such as RESILIENT, SUPER JOINTS etc...I do not have them myself but that would be something to look at and consider...Dennis

    A variety of mobility drill videos.

    Look up videos on mobilizing the first rib to free up the scalenes (painful, but tends to work- hopefully it will help you out).

    If your doctor says you may exercise without restrictions, then a movement screen is the next step. Find a CK-FMS in your area. Sometimes a personal visit is worth a thousand words of Internet advice.
