I need help. I have a friend who I play softball with who has had a series of little shoulder problems. About 4 times he's popped his shoulder either throwing or landing on it and not being able to lift it above 90 degrees for a week or two. Last time he landed on it he basically had a limp arm and woke up with a huge bruise.
He's in his late 20s, used to have a cannon from 3rd base when he played in highschool and hasn't been lifting weights for several years so its not some built up imbalance.
As far as I can tell, he didn't do anything chronically to precipitate it, but just slightly tore it by chance a year ago, and now does have a chronic problem.
Anyone had success with active release and is there any reason for it.
I know that #1 is to see a doctor, but he doesn't even want to do that unless he thinks there's something that can be done.
