When people are used to always having their body at full capacity, they often take things for granted. They don’t know any differently, until the day when that changes.
For Daniel Rockrohr, life changed both at work and at the gym due to his torn rotator cuff and labrum. At the time of his injury, Daniel was a bartender. While it may seem trivial, he couldn’t even lift the liquor bottles up to twist them with his right arm to pour. Basically, he had to lift them with his left hand and use the bar gun with his right arm.
When it came to exercise and shoulder instability, Daniel says,
“I was severely limited in what I could do personally. I couldn’t lift weights with my right arm. I couldn’t go speed flying because it would put my arm in a position that was very painful. I couldn’t really lift anything over my head. I was in pain and life was frustrating.”
