TweetMet with an orthopedic surgeon yesterday and she said my subscapularis tendon is totally ripped off the bone, my bicep tendon is ruptured and retracted, my supraspinatus is completely torn in half and my labrum is torn. She said if it were her shoulder, she we get the surgery.
Well, I told her how I am healing my shoulder thru hanging and she was pretty fascinated. I told her there is no way I can have surgery done and miss any work so she is on board with me trying to carry on with no surgery.
Did you know that gorillas and chimpanzees never have rotator cuff problems? because swinging from branches is good for you. lol
Trust me, this works!!!!!! So grateful. I came across this guy. My sho8ulder has improved dramatically since I started on this.

TweetPS- Right now I am hanging for 30 seconds at a time and I am doing it about 10-15 times a day. I use wrist straps when I want to hang longer. The surgeon agreed, yes, you can remodel your acromion process thru wolfes law
A welding instructor at the prison is going build me a monkey bars/overhead ladder and I am going to concrete it into the ground on ,my property. Im going to get chinning bars and dip bars too.
I am going to swing like a monkey every single day and save my shoulders.. haha.
Even if your shoulders are healthy, you shu8ld do some hanging to keep them healthy. It has been a miracle for me. Since I started hanging, Ive eliminated all need for ibuprofen or aspirin. If my shoulder starts to throb, I hang for 30 seconds- pain is gone.
I am putting a chinning bar in my office at work too.
This has been one of my greatest discoveries ever
I told the surgeon that I havent taken a vacation or a day off from work in 25 years and I cant miss work for surgery. She was great. We talked about everything. She even said "we could talk for hours!" haha...unfortunately she is married. lol
TweetYeah I do it 2 times a week. I saw it first on JR twitter. Started with 2 times for 30 seconds now do 3 times for one minute.
TweetHave been hanging for a week now and shoulder is better but still hurts 24/7 but not as high of pain. I just think that damaged tissue where the tendon ripped off the bone needs to scar up before I can start lifting heavier. I no longer have use of my right subscapularis, supraspinatous and long head beceps so I have to build up the strength of everything I have left and hope it stablizes so I can do dips and pullups and deadlifts and keep as much muscle mass as possible..
Im also using the Rotatorreliever which is kicking ass. You would be surprised how just spinning that ball on the end of a stick kicks the shit out of your shoulder muscles.
TweetSo far so good at about 9 weeks since the injury and the surgeon said I had a window of 6 weeks since the injury for the best result from surgery. So I am past that. Tonight I was able to do 2 full range pullups and 20 half pushups. I have a long ways to go, but I am training my nervous system to rewire to the muscles that I still have left so they can do the work of the 3 muscles that are completely ruptured. I gotta go slow. Im only using 15 pounds for curls and stuff but I am doing it & it will keep getting stronger. The pain is 24/7 and I am not taking any pain meds whatsoever. I just rub shit on it when the pain gets crazy. The intensity of the pain is improving even though it never goes away, that is what tells me I am on the righ t track. It is slow progress but further along than I thought I would be. I am on a mission to prove that I can heal this without surgery.
Oh, Im hanging from a pullup bar about 20 or more times per day. Some of th e shoulder exercises Im only using 5 pound dumbells.
Im still waiting to get the shoulder rok in the mail. Hoping that will take my recovery to a new level.
No surgery, no pain pills and havent missed a day of work.
Tweetdammm.. dude i suffered prolly 3 years before i threw in the flag and did the surgery.. it was calcium build up and something cutting all the tendons and stuff. now several years later and not hitting the gym by any mean the way i want due to several factors my shoulder still isnt great but no pain while sleeping and that alone was worth the surgery. i tried everything but not what your doing.. i hope it works dude.. surgery sucks
