Shoulder impingement leads to rotator cuff tear …
“After having a desk job for over 30 years I started having shoulder pain. I visited an orthopedic physician specializing in shoulders who determined I had a rotator cuff tear. The surgeon said the tear was most likely caused by impingement resulting from being hunched over a keyboard for all those years. Due to another health issue I couldn’t have the surgery for 2 months.
I visited a PT associated with the surgeon and got some exercises he said would help me go into the surgery with as much strength and flexibility as possible to speed recovery. I had seen articles on The ROTATER and asked the PT if he thought it would be helpful. He watched some videos and said to go for it. I ordered The ROTATER and used it for 2 months prior to surgery and after surgery with the PT’s direction.
During my rehab, the PT constantly commented about the quick progress I was making. At 12 weeks he said my range of motion was better than sees for most people at 16 weeks. I’m sure the pre and post surgical use of The ROTATER with the PT’s guidance was a factor in the speed of my recovery.
Unfortunately, about a month after I was cleared for full activity I tore the long head of the bicep tendon plus some rotator cuff damage on the other shoulder. The surgeon said it was the same root cause, wear due to impingement. I’m having surgery in a week to get it repaired and I’m sure I’ll have a speedier than normal recovery using The ROTATER at my PT’s direction.”
