    Please try your best to help me.

    I think I'm a heavy hitter because I punch hard. An experienced boxing coach said that I have a hard shot. A Jeet Kun Do specialist said that I have "knockout power" in my punches. Anyways, I really hurt my power-punching shoulder (maybe rotator cuff/cup?)

    It really hurts. Leading up to the injury (I don't know how it happened), I recently did power cleans, am doing handstand training. And cardio (w hot/cold shower afterwards. Then really underslept that day, didn't eat until a big dinner, then I had a medium jiu-jitsu practice with medium sparring.
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    So after BJJ class, I warmed up before and a little after practice and jabbed the heavy bag = 100%. Then I like to throw a few light right crosses / straights and the fire a couple rights afterwords. So I fired some. OWW stinging in my shoulder. It really hurts at the momement of impact. This has never happened to me before.
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    PLEASE advise me on how to recover, recooperate, get my right back to 100%

    A friend of mine used to do strongman competitions and had a great future as an olympic powerlifter, but he screwed up his shoulders via rotater cuffs. He never went to the doctors for it and now he has some other problems - some biproducts of his shoulder injury.

    Rotater cuffs are NOTHING to scoff about. Go to a doctor and get the help you need before you suffer permenant damage.

    go to a ciropractor*sp*? you may have what i have, use those rubber bands at a light weight and rotate them towards your abs, then hold your grip and pivot 180 degrees and push outward.

    Why does everyone ask for medical advice on sherdog? Go see a doctor is the best answer your going to get here.

    I ask here because:

    This is a standup forum so in case somebody is familiar with the do's and dont's of shoulder/cuff recovery/healing and can give me a few tips, thats all. At least some general rules of thumb. I cannot afford a sports doctor right now.

    what's wrong with asking medical questiions on sherdog? If we all do the same thing, and he wants help without spending money, what's wrong with a question. don't waste your time posting his "mistake". if you are going to post, help him.

    As someone who has had chronic shoulder problems that eventually resulted in major surgery I have to agree that the correct answer is in fact "go see a doctor." But I'll do you one better, go see an orthopedic specialist or surgeon. Get an x-ray and an MRI if you can. And do it sooner than later because shoulder problems don't get better, they just get worse.

    Whats wrong with asking people that aren't doctors how you should treat a medical problem? Is that a serious question? And I am trying to help him by telling him where he should go to solve his problem. "if you are going to post, help him" so then why are you posting? Stop trying to be a smart ass.

    he's looking for someone who has a pain like him and he wants to see how they fixed it. go see a doctor is obvious, but i would ask people who had the problem first and see if it worked.

    ""if you are going to post, help him"" i already did, i'm backing up cardio because there are some complaining about how he should see a doctor they shouldn't post things like this. i just politely told the people who complain about a post like this to not waste their time replying.

    Actually a doctor is the BEST option, but just not the practicle in my situation (financial and country and level of medical expertise for a reasonable price).

    Some people saying, 'Go see a doctor" may not take into consideration the fact that it is not possible to see a qualfied doctor, who is usually not cheap either.

    So I was wondering about anyone, particularly boxer, who may know for example how long to rest, any streche, tylenol, etc, that can help shoulder/cuff problems. Actually my shoulder was perfect the last time I trained, I never injured it, the only thing that happend in between was.
    1. some pretty intense clean-jerks, with a heavy weight but no pain afterwards
    2. Alot of handstands
    2. a weak armbar attempt that I escaped and didn't really feel any pain afterwards.

    Some advice I got so far is:
    REST
    deep tissue massage
    applying warmth

    Because no one here is a qualified doctor, and it would end up doing more harm than good.

    Why doesn't Sherdog hire a sports doctor, striking coach, bjj blackbelt and MMA fighter to post here full time?

    Because it costs a lot of money to hire a qualified doctor to sit in front of a computer screen and answer stupid questions like "When I was at training, someone punched me in the ear and it's been ringing for the past 3 days. What do I do?"
