Title: Rotator cuff injury
Post by: KatyD on May 08, 2018, 11:27:07 AM
I purchased your system 4 years ago and had amazing results on my back along with help from Megan a SLM therapist  in the UK. I have been in pain for 4 weeks and was told that I have a rotator cuff injury, the physio hasnt given me exercises and recommended medicines and mentioned steroid injections but I dont like going down that avenue. So I was hoping that you may have some advice as Im hardly sleeping due to the pain

Hi Kate, a rotator cuff injury is a bit too complicated for a layman to fix themselves normally as it involves the radial nerve that runs down the arm usually getting involved with tight muscles. If you can get to see Megan she should be able to fix it pretty quickly. You might also have some success using the SLM Yoga techniques for the shoulders and arms and if that's not enough on its own get some massage to your arms as well zeroing in on the sore spots.

Sorry I can't offer more than that.

Thanks Steve,
Unfortunately Megan no longer does the SLM massage and it appears (from you directory) that there is no one left in the UK who does it any more. Unless you know of anyone who may not be on the list yet but does include SLM in their service.
Kind regards Kate
