Dr. Rockwood, Jr. discusses how women can prevent rotator cuff injuries.
Dr. Rockwood, Jr.:
Well, I think probably from my experience I would tell them if you are going to start doing some rehabilitation suddenly that you have somebody show you what to do, teach you what to do, tell you which equipment you should deal with and which one you shouldn’t deal with.
And other than that, I really can’t think of much. Obviously, you don’t want to be overweight; you don’t want to be sick and puny. If you are going to decide to start doing your rehab to make your shoulder stronger, to get rid of some flab maybe, but that’s best done by seeing somebody who knows how to put you into the system.
