How did you heal yours'? Astroman
- I initially first injured them in the early 90's, and got frozen shoulder on both two. None was at the same time at least.
I first went to GP, who sent me to an Ortho, who confirmed rotator cuff issues and gave a cort shot -didnt help.
I then relied on chiros and PT's. They made it better, but not cured. Both shoulders "clicked" up to 2008. I'd have flar-ups, but not like the initial injury.
So in 2008, I started to learn all about
soft tissue treatments via online - and sought professional help in these areas. Active Release Technique(these people are magical !), trigger point release and myofacial release is what fixed them- with strengthening in between. I also bought a cheap US hand device- its OK,. not like the pro units though.
My shoulders / blades/ upper arms are now "ripple" free and pain free when relaxed. I do the muscle work on them before and after workouts. And I sometimes take weeks long breaks between workouts to see what I feel like fully relaxed. My hips are the next big project, a difficult one too.
So its my same "program" I've been using on my entire body. I'm not a freak, as some here might think, pro athletes have had this stuff done for them on a regular basis.- the pro teams P/T's do this stuff regularly. Its the fastest recovery; a pro down is money lost.
Athletes or not, our bodies are the same.
Regular medicine is so far behind the times.
While you are still in this "touchy" phase. - Ultra sound, ant-inflamitory gels, alternate warm/cold, skip warm if it makes this worse. And very light finger tip massage when you can do this. Then, graduate to the above ideas if you wish (and I hope there is an ART practitioner near you, its worth it for the long haul).
