Dr. Buchberger was

the American Chiropractic Board of Sports Physicians!
Rotator Cuff and Scapular
The Buchberger-12® is a series of twelve exercises designed to strengthen the rotator cuff and scapular (shoulder blade) stabilizing muscles of the shoulder. These exercises prepare and protect the shoulder girdle for the extreme stresses of overhand sports (baseball, softball, swimming, volleyball, tennis, water polo, etc.)
The program provides a series of progressive challenges to the shoulder muscles without over training. There are twelve exercises performed over two days. Six exercises on the first day and a different six exercises on the second day. The cycle is then repeated. Dividing the program into a two-day cycle maintains the challenge while making the program manageable for almost everyone. Because of the change in challenge day to day recovery is built into the program.
The Buchberger-12® Clinical Version 2009 includes several
changes and additions for the health care provider and the patient.
Progressions have been added to help guide patients and providers alike in
achieving correct performance of the Buchberger-12®. Clinical notations
regarding when to use or discontinue an exercise have been included.
Lastly, Dr. Buchberger's shoulder instability rehabilitation protocol has been
added as a bonus.

"The Buchberger-12® program was an integral part of my return to pitching in the Major Leagues following Tommy John surgery
to my throwing elbow. The Buchberger-12® corrects many of the weaknesses that can lead to shoulder impingement following
Tommy John surgery. I am now using the Buchberger-12® as part of my arm maintenance and conditioning program.
It has allowed me to throw more innings with higher velocities in the late innings and it has improved my recovery
between outings so I can be ready for my team when they need me. If you want to reduce your chance of injury,
recover faster and throw your top velocity late in the game, then I would recommend that you get
the Buchberger-12® rotator cuff and scapular strengthening program!"
Jason Stanford, Major League Pitcher
"Your Buchberger-12® book is awesome! I have had great success with my
shoulder patients thanks to your information & concepts. I was also a
football player in the Canadian Football League (CFL) for several years
before I was a chiropractor, and I wish I had the Buchberger-12® back then.
I had reconstructive surgery on my shoulder several years ago and have used your
instruction to get back strength and mobility in my shoulder (over the
past year) that I thought was gone forever!"

"In throwing athletes, it is important to be able to strengthen the shoulder musculature in a safe and effective manner.
As a strength and conditioning specialist, I use The Buchberger-12® as a safe, functional alternative to contraindicated
exercises that increase the risk of injury to the shoulder girdle. I use the Buchberger-12® on my pitchers and position
players for injury prevention and rehabilitation purposes."
