Shoulder Injury?  Don’t let that stop you.

  1. Shoulder injuries are so common we have an entire program called the Shoulder Symmetry System which helps restore proper function and range of motion for shoulders.  It’s a 2-month program that helps build range of motion, restore function, and improve strength.
  2. We also have developed a 12-step Shoulder Screen that we use to flag serious injuries such as labrum tears, impingements, rotator cuff injuries, bursitis, etc.  If you do have a serious injury like this, we work with your MRI center and physical therapist to keep you training, while improving your shoulder function.  If you don’t already have a physical therapist, we work with several amazing ones at Sand & Steel and are happy to refer you.
  3. If you have healed your shoulder injury and have resultant scar tissue and/or restricted motion, we can improve your range of motion through our Mobility and Muscle Therapy programming.  This programming will help you restore full range of motion and handle weight through that range of motion.
  4. What if you just want to lose weight?  We have several options from our strength based Stand Strong Program, to our Redline No Shoulders Weight Loss Program.
  5. Time can heal many wounds… but not typically shoulder injuries.  To heal shoulder injuries, we generally have to correct the biomechanical pattern that caused the injury in the first place.   It could stem from incorrect technique in a snatch or tilted pelvis.  Anti-inflammatories like D-Flame can help, but they alleviate the pain, not the source.

When designing a corrective exercise program, be sure to pick movements that you can execute safely with good form.

The bottom line is this.  Shoulder injuries are challenging to overcome, but working with challenging injuries is what separates mediocre personal trainers from the pros.  If you have a serious shoulder injury, find a personal training studio that has the experience to help you.
How can you know if they are experienced to help you?  Look for speciality certifications like FMS, MAT, NASM Corrective Exercises, etc.

Also, check out their current clients testimonials?  Are you first client with an injury or is this their bread and butter?  Don’t be their test case, and ask for client references.
