I ordered this book for my brother-in-law who has experienced shoulder pain and not being able to lift his arm higher than shoulder level due to a rotator cuff injury he received in the past. I recommended it to him because of the wonderful results I got using the information in this book to treat my own right shoulder pain. Having previously read, Jim Johnson's, The Sixty-Second Motivator, and finding it very helpful, I can tell you that I certainly had the motivation to try and stick with an exercise that would relieve my painful and restricting condition. And it sounded to me like my brother-in-law was in the same boat. I used the Sidelying External Rotation exercise on page 55 of the rotator cuff book and got great results. The first time I tried it I could only manage to raise a 20 ounce can of pineapple about half way up less than ten times. I found the detailed instruction, precautions and notes particularly helpful and feel that carefully following them was why I experienced the gradual recovery. My wife sat beside me making sure I did the exercise slowly and exactly as the book states. After about four weeks I actually worked up to fully raising the can of pineapple 20 times. Later on I increased the weight little by little and began to feel good enough to resume some of the more physically demanding activities on our small farm. Last week I was actually able to assist with harvesting our hay and didn't suffer during or afterward from any of the shoulder pain or stiffness that I had previously experienced many times. Yes, I was careful about what I did and how I worked, but for me to even attempt to try stacking a 60 pound bale of hay was completely out of the question a few months ago. I went from shoulder pain that caused me sleepless nites and not being able to lift my right arm any higher than shoulder level, to what I consider a darned good day's work. This book is a real bargain and indeed I consider it invaluable when I think about how it helped me. And as you can see, I heartily recommend it.

This book is essentially a collection of the latest rotator cuff research and rehabilitation exercises explained in simple layman's terms. Rotator cuff anatomy and function are covered so that the reader knows exactly what's going on in their shoulder and why it feels the way it does. Every exercise is wonderfully illustrated and explained. Additionally, the book cites the exact studies which prove that the exercises are effective in treating rotator cuff problems. Get this book if you have a rotator cuff problem or want to avoid one. Good for patients, personal trainers, physical therapists, massage therapists, athletic trainers or anybody with deals with clients that have shoulder problems.

There are only 2 books written in the world for the layman on the rotator cuff. Besides this book, the other one is written more for the athlete and is quite outdated (published in 1990). So, I didn't get much from it. Then there's this book. In it, you'll learn what the rotator cuff is, what it does, and exactly how it works (Chapter 1). Then you'll learn about all the problems you can fix by treating the rotator cuff (Chapter 2). And let me tell you, rotator cuff exercises are NOT just for people with rotator cuff tears, but can also help with MANY other shoulder problems as well! Then comes the best part (Chapter 3), the exercises for the rotator cuff, which are all laid out in pictures with detailed explanations- so you can't screw them up! The book then moves on to the exercise routines (Chapter 4) which lays out three programs- a beginning, intermmediate, and advance routine. By doing it this way, the book can be useful to anyone- from the secretary, to the construction worker, and even athletes. Literally, there's a routine in the book for EVERYONE. Finally, the book ends with a chapter on measuring your progress over time to ensure you're getting where you want to be. So all-in-all, I gave it 5 stars for its great content, useful information, easy to understand language, and the fact that the exercises have been proven to work in randomized, controlled trials. What more do you want?

I hurt my shoulder 4 months ago. The pain slowly ruined my quality of life. Any movement brought waves of pain. I was desperate when I bought this book. Yes, I had seen these same stretches and exercises before, BUT they are put into beginner, intermediate and advanced routines. I am still on beginner, but my improvement is 100%. My pain level has decreased so I can sleep at night. I can also start enjoying some of my daily activities without aching so much. I highly recommend this book.
