    No convincing needed. During her course as a PTA, they had a course teaching the wii to senior citizens. Nothing to lengthy but they touched on the subject for a day. I was just suprised to see a video game to be recognized of value for the rehabilitation of injuries.

      Re: Dislocated shoulder

      My buddy who is a HVAC guy had his shoulder replaced last summer. Did all the rehab and is pain free now. From what I know about the shoulder iti s an unusual joint that is held in place mostly by tendons and muscle. Requires a combination of stretching for range of motion and resistance exercise to keep the muschles that hold it in place strong! I know som of you guys think you stay strong from being active at work but that is not the same as specific weight training . Follow doctors advice and do rehab, then adopt a routine of light to moderate weight training to stay injury free.

        Cause your azz is old now. You can't go to the bar and talk about what you downloaded on your Ipod. You've got to get you one of those change purses and a pill box.

        Tell the doc to put a grease fitting at your shoulder.

                Okay...my shoulders are freaking strong. I had a bit of a problem 3 years ago when I got to pressing 300 lbs. Hurt a tendon and it took a few years (seems that long) to heal. Its fine as long as I remember my age and that I am NOT Iron Man, darn it.

                I sleep on a double thick pillow and haven't pressed more than 100 lbs. since then. That's the only concession.

                I went to a few doctors, but they were all kinda dumb.

                  Well, I don't warm up much before I lift and last week I pressed 250lbs and hurt my shoulder! Guess I'll be forced to man up and accept my age and limitations. No fun gettting old but it beats the alternative!

                    I warm up with light weights and stretch on the ab horse.

                    Another good shoulder exercise: I use the cable machine by putting the pulley all the way to the floor and using a single grip, pulling the weight up....like a pipe wrench action. It maxes out the shoulder/back muscles at 3 sets of 12. Problem is, the machine only goes up to 200.

                    I may have only been in pain for a few months, actually.

                      I've got to get it in my head that the heavy weights are a thing of the past. Even before I hurt my shoulder, lifting heavy agravates the herniated discs in my neck and back which cause pain throughout the night. I'm really sick of the pain, so from now on it will be a lighter workout. I don't need all this body weight anyway, with the high blood pressure. I'm just over 220lbs, and I'd be fine around 180lbs. Problem is I'm so used to eating and lifting, things got to change.

                        I hear tell that some people lift heavy once a week on a Saturday morning. I always went with "Lift Heavy or Go Home" or as best you can do that day. I lift to failure whatever the weight.

                        One thing I've always did was listen to my body. It tells me my shoulders are getting old, I work around it with different exercises. It tells me to lay off for 2 weeks, I do it.

                        I weigh about 250 now. Much of it gained when I quit smoking 12 years ago and some from sitting at the desk---hate office work. I'm comfortable looking like a 6'2" fire hydrant...

                        My bp is 130/90 with a 60 heart rate, all at rest. I got some b.p. meds when it went up to 160/100--during the economy meltdown. I still watch it on a weekly basis.

                        I use Tynenol PM at night when needed. A half a PM pill and a few regular ones and I'm out like a light. It seems I've been in pain since my first year of apprenticeship.

                              Early on when I started lifting with a good friend, we assumed women would find the muscles attractive. We enjoyed working out and one day we went to see Al Pacino in "Crusing". He played a cop who had to go under cover to catch a killer who preyed upon Gays. What was the first thing he did to prepare himself for his undercover assignment? You guessed it, he started lifitng. My buddy and I couldn't stop laughing! Unless all the women I've ever met are liars, they really don't care for muscular physiques? I do appreciate the look and ever since my first Steve Reeves, Hercules movie I was hooked. I don't care for the look of very muscular women, I admire their effort but the end result is too masculine for my taste.

                                You're a cool dude whether you can bench or not Frank.

                                Myself, I can bench a beer and that's about it.

                                But I'll be benching some pumpkin pie pretty soon, since Thanksgiving for us canucks is October 12th.

                                I might break out the pie way before that though............
