Treatment has involved 3 days of strong anti inflammatories & 15 minutes of icing 3 times per day. Plus twice weekly phyiso visits where he does a few tests, then sticks his fingers into places that feel quite unpleasant around my shoulder & armpit (read massages) followed by laying back for 10 minutes with a Tens machine stuck to my shoulder with an & ice pack on top.
I asked him exactly what the Tens machine does to which he laughed & replied "Magic" before explaining that it gives electrical pulses which stimulate the nerve promoting recovery & repair.
It is slowly getting better, but I am impatient & it seems to be soooooooo slow!!!!!!!!! One more week before I can start back with the upper body stuff he said yesterday.
All that work I was doing towards doing pull ups I'd imagine will have dissipated & I'll have to start over. Plus my push up ability will have declined. Who would have thought I'd be upset by not being able to do a push up?? More than anything I'm frustrated at the strength I will have lost :0(
One of my cousins told me on the weekend that my shoulders/arms look bony to which I flexed my arms & said NO I HAVE MUSCLE DEFINITION. Well, maybe not as much as I did 5 weeks ago. Sigh.
