I had a chance to get out in the long shadows today but aggravated my frozen shoulder while in the james river park. When this happens I nearly blackout from pain for a couple of minutes. When I was on the interstate before the funeral this past weekend throwing the toll in the booth in my suit nearly did me in. The pain from this condition is unbelievable and I’ve survived some pretty serious physical trauma in my lifetime. I was also having some problems while hugging people at the funeral and had to grimace and bear it, people just don’t understand a big burley man being injured with out a cast. Today I nearly black-out at the river from twisting the wrong way going down a hill in the brush and still feel bad. I’ve had a cortisone shot for this that lasted a couple of weeks (won’t do that again). A reflexoligist gave me some exercises to do, but today I guess because of the cold has been a bad day.
Frozen Shoulder Syndrome
“Current conventional treatment includes anti-inflammatory drugs, cortisone injection, and surgical manipulation under anesthetic. There is no guarantee the patient will see any results with these treatments. If they do, it is often limited.”
