  • Broken shoulder

    Hi, I have done T-tapp for 2 years and I love it. My results are slow but consistent. Unfortunately, two weeks ago I had a fall which left me with a broken shoulder. I am interested in doing some moves for the rest of my body. Any suggestions?

    Hello: I wish a fast and strong recovery!

    The trainers are at the Tribute to Trisch Retreat, hopefully BlessedMama will be able to provide guidance after the trip.
    As I always say, T-Tapp is God-Given and God Guided. I am honored to have the opportunity to share what's been gifted to me. There is so much more woven within each of the T-Tapp exercise and special sequences within the workouts than just a means to lose inches and look good......So good luck....just do your personal best and you WILL continue to repair/rebuild from the inside out and your body will continue to look, feel and FUNCTION better too. - Teresa (April 12, 2018)

        Hi Soshesews,

        How is your shoulder doing? Are you in any cast or sling or any kind of care from doctor or physical therapist? I want to make sure we are not giving you advices contradicting to the professional advices you receive.

        In general, it will be better than you sign up with a trainer who has rehab and massage therapist experience and have a call over the internet to see your range of motion, your activation, your form and your overcompensation tendency via a webcam.

        You are completely correct that you have to keep other parts of the body moving to help the shoulder heal. When I hurt and bump my knees, if I can do a workout, I would do Tempo Arms and sit down workouts. If I were to hurt my shoulder, then I would do walking or stepping workout.

        I will suggest Posture Power Walk and Finger and Foot Fitness as a combo for now. Activating from finger tip to the lats will help your shoulder heal much faster and more comprehensively. In addition, add on First Step to help with the pain relieve and complete healing for the entire body, I am sure when you fell, the whole body was impacted, even the shoulder sustained the most injury.

        Since you have "sew" in your forum name, I suspect that you might have hidden repetitive motion injuries and that shoulder you hurt was the dominant side and was always a tight and painful side for overworking and over compensating for the weak point and side, and in addition, you might be trap dominant as a hunch... So, when you are ready in 6 month or a year, do Tempo Arms and Finger and Foot Fitness at least twice a week going forward to reverse any condition.

        When you have time, starting today, practice ribs up and lats tight daily every few hours. Were you able to activate your lats on demand? Using lats will reverse trap dominance. This thread might help if you have not found your lats... https://forum.t-tapp.com/forum/main-...have-in-common

        Tell me more and I will let you know what else I think of.

          Ayj67, Thanks for the suggestions. My shoulder is in a sling. All the breaks are in alignment, so gravity is my friend in this case:-) I am under the care of a doctor and they have given me some gentle stretching exercises to do for it. I do deal with tight traps, but the break is on my non-dominate side. I got my feet tangled in my laptop computer cord. It one of those silly things you do....I managed to fall without breaking my favorite coffee cup! And yes, i hurt all over, but, I have recovered from that part much quicker than the doc expected. I attribute that to T-Tapp.
          I have the Foot and Finger Fitness DVD and I have Step Away the Inches, but not the Posture Power Walk. Is there great differences in the two?

            Thanks, I am doing well! I enjoyed doing most of the Foot and Finger fitness today! T-tapp is the greatest!

          There are more fascia stretching focuses with Posture Power Walk, however, use what you have is fine, just make sure to get a copy of First Step and start using it when you get the DVD. You probably will not be using First Step until the sling is off.

          I want to see that precious coffee cup that you laid down your body for, LOL.

            I got the First Step Fascia Fitness, was that the right one? I was able to do the warm up- sort of , with variations and I also did PBS with variations. I am 3 1/2 weeks into the break and have been able to move my shoulder without pain doing these moves. My hopes are to daily do the warm up and a workout set. I am so anxious to be finished with this shoulder, but it takes time. I have been enjoying walking though. T

              That is the right one! I am glad that you have no pain... This workout will help you heal faster and pain-free/

            Yet, another question. Is it more important to be balanced on each side or should I be using my good shoulder to the max and the other to its max?

              Go to the max of your weaker one. That will be hard--you will naturally want to let your good shoulder to to its max, but this will only strengthen the imbalance.

            Really focus on lats to keep ribs up throughout the day and during any workout moves you can do. That will help free the shoulder and keep things in alignment. Also realize you have a sling of muscles from the hip to the opposite shoulder, so a hip issue can affect the opposite shoulder and vice-versa. Once you are cleared for regular activity and exercise, doing seated workouts or doing what you can in a chair will help isolate the hips to help you focus more on lats to keep ribs up. As you transition to standing, focus on "activate hips", which is a newer tweak. After getting set up in the T-Tapp stance, shift weight into the heels (that is also good for walking/standing), then activate the ankles first to turn out the whole leg, ankles, knees then hips. After you have that, pretend you are reaching into your lower tummy muscles to pull that tailbone under a bit more with the core, to turn out the hips, which in turn stabilizes the hips. Retighten glutes to help hold in place. Don't just turn out at the hip, use the core. Believe it or not, that stability will help your shoulders to be more stable as well!

            Ribs UP will be your new mantra!

              Thanks Trisch, you are right, it will be hard to go to the max of my weak arm. It does make sense to stay balanced. I will start using a chair! Ribs up it is!!!!
