    just to chk if i got it right..post# 12-16 for warm ups
    post #17-20 are the exercise...btw...how many sets (and wht weights) should i start with considering the fact that i'm skinny ..and i intend to build strength rather than muscle mass

    i'm not sure abt the exercises in post#21-23...are they for the shoulder too..?

    12-16 is for stretching.
    17 onward is to strengthen your muscles.

    u should do 10 repetition per set.
    increase the weight gradually until u feel u r struugling with rep 8 , 9 and 10.
    do 3 sets per exercise.
    rest around 2 mins per set/exercise.
    all the exercise i into is for shoulder.

    Same problem here. Found any cure?

    I have a similar problem and my research points to what they call Shoulder Impingement Syndrome which plagues people who do a lot of overhead games like tennis, badminton, swimming, etc. My problem has persisted for 6 months now and i have stopped playing for 2 months. I even wake up in middle of the night due to the ache/pain. Like you i also find that if i play, the pain goes away after the 1st set and the shoulder is fine for a few days after. Then the pain returns...but recently i find the pain getting more consistent so i stopped.

    Standard treatments are long course of anti-imflammation drugs NSAIDs and steroid injections. In extreme cases operation. I am currently trying Chinese medicine.

    Anyway keep each other posted on this especially if you find a cure.

    Hi,
    rest is the main thing for you.
    At the same time, you may try some exercise from Chinese physician.
    Here is an example.
    1) Stand next to a wall which your painful arm facing to the wall.
    One hand distance from the wall.
    2) raise your hand from the side till your shoulder height if u could.
    3) use your finger, "walking" upwards. Until your should cant take it.
    4) Open your palm rest on the wall, press your body to the wall. which pressure on your shoulder and arm.
    Repeat it, it will help to relieve your injury.

    Hi nematode...i'm really sorry to hear about your injury..mine wasn't so severe to wake me up in the middle of the night.
    You should definitely consult a physio...they will b best able to diagnose your injury
    My doctor had suggested only rest....i think resting the affected area should do you some good..and do hot fomentation...it worked for me.
    i rested my shoulder for about 3 weeks ...taking care not to even lift any heavy weights to put stress on them..Then i stared off slowly with the rotator cuff exrecises and those suggested by blind aim to strengthen my shoulder muscles.
    I wont say..i have fully recovered yet, thts because i havent resumed playing at full capacity..only light knocks, but i feel better already :)

    hope you get well soon

    thanks Sayem. hope u get completely cured too. i think my injury was a result of too high tension or heavy racket head. it happened when i changed to Nanospeed 9900. Played much better w it though ;-)

    This mostly due to internal inflamation therefore you can buy those relieve heat pad from pharmacy. Apply it daily to relieve the pain. Or use hot oilment to gently massage.
    Make sure your body is dry and cover it after you apply. Make it hot but dont apply too much till you burnt your skin.
    The easiest way is to use: Ammeltz YoKo YoKO.


    Another exercise which helps to relieve is as below.
    You will feel pain in this exercise but i have a way to let you measure how effective of it.

    To measure how bad is your injury:
    1) Raise your whole hand from the side of body upwards.
    2) This will determine how high you can raise.

    To start your exercise. Imagine you holding a plate using palm and never let it drop.
    For example we say is right hand pain.

    1) Stand straight, open your palm and imagine you are putting a plate on it.
    which means your right thumb is pointing out pinky finger is on the left most.
    Keep it relax and no need to extend the palm to open.
    2) Staring from place your palm in front of your chest about 20cm distance.
    3) Turn your palm inwards, pinky finger turn into your chest first.
    4) Your palm is going to your stomach area and keep turning outwards and upwards.
    5) Make it turn over your head and return to the starting pose.
    Just like writing a "8". All the turning, you have to imagine you CANT make the plate fall.
    It will be painful on the muscle but if possible, make it 15 times and rest.

    End of the training, you can repeat this:
    To measure how bad is your injury:
    1) Raise your whole hand from the side of body upwards.
    2) This will determine how high you can raise.

    I believe you can raise higher than the original. :)
