Here’s the story: I had 2 bad shoulders. After 10 sessions of ART my right shoulder is perfect and my left shoulder still hurts. The Dr., who is certified in ART and teaches it, tells he can’t find any more damage in the soft tissue of the joint. He suggests that I go to an orthopedic surgeon to get the cartilage in the joint examined. When I went to an orthopedic surgeon today, he looks at me like I was an idiot for suggesting there may be a problem with the cartilage. I felt like chokin’ him into unconsciousness (he didn’t see me until 2 hours after my appointment time and that fucked up my day at work). Instead, I let them take x-rays, they should no bone damage (duh!), and he recommends I see the physical therapist across the hall.
That would be wasting my time because I’ve already done physical therapy and ART. Now, my plan is to find an orthopedic surgeon who will just let me get an MRI and will examine the cartilage. I’m open to advice from anyone who has been through this before or knows medicine/rehabilitation.
