Thank you Dr. Ujjwal Shakya for the incredibly informative and practical shoulder injury seminar you presented yesterday! Shoulder injuries are pervasive in our sport; whether you train for fitness or competition, knowledge in this area is critical to success in training. Dr. Shakya's seminar covered common types of shoulder injuries, self treatment and techniques, posture education, how it applies to MMA (grappling and punching), and specific therapeutic exercises & videos of exercises. All proceeds were donated to Save One Life, a non-profit organization dedicated to offering opportunities to sponsor individuals with bleeding disorders in developing countries. Dr. Shakya has been involved with this organization since 2003 and sponsors two children with hemophilia. The seminar raised almost $200 for Save One Life! Please check out Dr. Shakya's blog for some of the videos he used in the seminar: REHAB MMA. He will be presenting more seminars in the future, so stay tuned!
