    Hey Mr Bob Schrupp and Brad Heineck, here it’s my inquiry, the mild resistance exercise in shoulder extension requires patient to pull back their hands, would it cause the shoulder subluxation to them?

    What exercises are there for an increased tone on abduction of the shoulder, on flexion of the elbow and for increased tone on supination of the forearm? Whilst there is no active movement and reduced sensation too?
    Many thanks.

    Dear Dr.Bob & Dr.Brad first I am sorry for my English may not excellent because I’m self studying ,,,, second I don’t know how to thank you, for me I had a vertigo and you helped me with exercises only on week and I am 100% fine , You are the best ,And now with your stroke videos I am starting helping my Uncle and if you want me to keep updates for his situation improvement performance step by step I’ll send it to you, because it may help you to know how much time for patients to heal .
    on the other hand I have a question is the motivation speaking while exercises helps ?how much you gave for it by percent % ?
    also there is a story of my neighbor had bad stroke more than his half body can’t move , And now he is totally fine 100% with less than one month , I don’t want to share his story here before you read it to see if its can help other people or not because some way its crazy and the other way it focused on motivation , if you are interest in that email me at
