thearun531: hmmmmm helllo sir am from india……… iam a crickter(medium pace bowler) so i generally get pains in my shoulders and back……….. and it stops me from concentrating on ma cricket…………………..………….. so i neeed a suggestion from you for my question
Manu: I would recommend following the shoulder sequence of exercises I have posted. Make sure the scapular, upper back, rotator cuff and other shoulder muscles are strong. Specially focus on eccentric movement of the rotator cuff muscles. As a bowler you are performing a fast overhead movement and then requiring the arm to decelerate resulting in a major load on your rotator cuff muscles. So you really need to work on this deceleration component. Also work on stretching to get good upper back, spine and rib cage flexibility. Yoga can also be very effective in improving flexibility, strength and motor control in three dimensional planes.
From an Ayurvedic standpoint, massage the shoulder daily with Mahanarayan oil or Rumalya. Nadi svedan (herbal steam treatment) given to the shoulder can also help loosen up toxins in the joint, improve circulation and decrease pain.
Herbal formulations like Yograj Guggulu, Kaishore Guggulu, Punarnavadi Guggulu and herbs like Ashwagandha, Musta, Guduchi, Nirgundi, Turmeric and Ginger can be very helpful for reducing pain and inflammation. They also help strengthen the joint, ligaments and tendons while removing unwanted toxins and metabolic byproducts from the body.
