If you are in precarious health, have fragile bones or are unwilling to attempt partial or full hanging from a bar or similar support, do not waste your money or time on this book." - John M.

    A simple but effective technique

    I admit I was skeptical when I first heard about this book. I read the other reviews (on several sites) and felt that there were just too many five-stars to be believed. However, the reviews are not wrong: (1) the book is really just an extended pamphlet, (2) this is a very simple program, and (3) most importantly, this method really does work. Please find a more complete review below.

    First, my injury. My shoulder pain started a few years ago when I was working out in the gym and doing an over-head shoulder press. After a cortisone injection, everything went back to normal, until I slightly reinjured the shoulder doing pushups a year later. In neither instance was the injury super serious - I lost my ability to throw a baseball very hard, but could still go about my day-to-day life and work out. Just under a year ago, however, I seriously injured the shoulder reaching up for a rebound in basketball. This caused blinding pain and led to me not being able to lift my arm much above my shoulder, making getting dressed a painful endeavor.

    After six months of physical therapy and another cortisone injection, I had improved only slightly, from not being able to lift my arm above my shoulder to being able to gently and barely lift my arm 10 degrees above my shoulder. This was not enough to get me to the point where my day-to-day life wasn't impacted. It was then that I decided to purchase this book.

    I started the program about a month ago with only one week off during that time (traveling and not having access to gym). In that time my shoulder has improved dramatically. Just one week into the program, I improved more than I did in six months of PT. I haven't tried throwing a baseball (the ultimate test for me), but I have been able to play basketball, do gym workouts, and frankly just get dressed in the morning without pain.

    There can be some fear that the program will be painful to perform, especially if you have serious pain lifting your arm (as I did). I will tell you that I was not at all confident my first time trying this, however my fears were unfounded. Yes, your shoulder will hurt initially when starting the program (which the book acknowledges), however the pain is not as bad as you might imagine and it gets better/goes away very quickly (within 1-2 sessions).

    My only cautionary note is that you will notice strain in other muscles. My arms and hands are more sore and are still adjusting to the program, but the overall improvement in my shoulder and arm has been tremendous. I can lift weights over my head and nearly fully extend my arm straight up, something I felt may not have happened without this book. This book is worth the money.
