If you have had a significant trauma to your shoulder resulting in residual numbness, tingling, hypersensitivity, weakness, or loss of full range of motion due to pain or joint immobility for several months, I highly recommend that you have it evaluated first to determine the cause of your problem, before undertaking a program such as this. Above all else, do no harm is my creed and I do not want you to exacerbate your problem by doing the wrong therapy. If you are found to be ‘good to go’ by your physician, meaning you have no underlying condition, then follow these suggestions for several weeks.
