I just had my first, and perhaps only session of active release therapy for a a strained tendon in the shuolder.  It was painful.  They used a combination of electritity, movement, and of course massage to deliver a "dynamic" massage.  I feel zero pain at the moment.  I may return next week if pain returns.  Fingers crossed.  I have green light to lift again.

nope.  last time i posted it, it was before I went in.  A lot of ppl asked me to tell them my experience.  www.activerelease.com is some nationwide database.  you type in your zip code and it gives you a doctor in your area who is trained in active release therapy.

max rep, milos, and other recommended it to me, and i was very happy with it.  If you have a nagging injury or just something new, you may want to look into it.  My main doctor was pretty worthless.  "Look like a sprain or a strain.  Take a lot of advil, and I can get you harder painkillers if you want them..."  This guy used electricity to make certain muscles twitch, some sonogram machine to read something they did, and was able to outright tell me the problem.   

I'd recommend you find an active release doc in your area if you do get injured.

This sounds similar to what I had last week. I had back pain from an injury almost a year ago and I haven't been able to train consistently since. I had electrodes put on the muscles and after it when I stood up the pain was gone and my back was mobile again. I could barely believe it. I've been back training a week and it still feels great

sorry - I missed this link

it's incredible.  I still have a litttttle bit of an ache when I've kept the left shoulder flexed and elevated (playing bass in 55 degree air for 4 straught hours).  A small amount of stretching usually stops the ache.

The rest of the time, it is back to normal.  I throw in rotator cuff movements 4-5 times a week with 2 pound or no weight.  Wow, those were probably the most painful 6 weeks of my life... just a constant burning and aching, every minute I was awake.  I thank God it's better now.  i can't recommend ART enough for others as well.

Rob, could we please get an update?  I have a shoulder prob as well (I can't sleep on my left side etc) and a massage helped it but didn't fix it.

It's still great today stella.  I feel a little bit of something after a heavy shoulder workout.  But it's good now.  It was 6 weeks of just nonstop throbbing all day, every day.  I still swear by the ART.
