I could use some help. I recently visted a orthopedist for pain in my right shoulder. After the MRI, he said I have shoulder tendinitis with thickness in my rotator cuff tendon, which may also have a slight tear. He doesnt recommend surgury, he recommends a physical therapist. I got this injury from a car accident.
I dropped Bench Presses from my routine, do I also have to drop Overhead Presses? They are my favorite exercise!! Would ART help also in this area.
I also hurt my left wrist by falling down. I have pain in my wrist (especially near my thumb), with numbness and tinglyness in my thumb, pointer and middle fingers. Hard to make a fist certain times of the day. The same ortho. gave me a x-ray (came back with no break), told me to take vit B6 (50mg/3x a day) and gave me a brace to wear when I sleep. He seemed to be concerned about me having a form of carpal tunnel syndrome. Would ART help in this area also? I have a re-evaluation appt in 6 weeks.
Have you heard of Prolotherapy? Muscle&Fitness did an article on it. What are your thoughts on it?
Do you recommend any ART providers in the New York City area?
Thank you for your time and help.
