Re: Shoulder Injury/ Painful arc syndrome
I had rotator cuff surgery back in June. (full tear) I wasn't able to do any Aikido until December and my shoulder still has very limited motion in certain directions and can be painful at times. I always let my partner know about my bad shoulder so as not to reinjure it. Currently I am working on strengthening it and stretching it to regain a full range of motion.The doctor said it will take a full year for it to be back to 100%. In the mean time I am careful with it but I also feel it progressing day by day.
I have noticed that the weakness in my shoulder will quickly bring out any imperfection in my techniques because it won't allow me to muscle through the technique.
