Had c5-c6 Fusion 05/18/06 & left shoulder impingement surgery 11/24/06(no Tears), Recovery was going well . I couldn’t find a good therapist so i was doing my own rehab using the info from this site,The inside out routine foam rollers & my ART Practioner.
About a two months ago I started hearing my scapula grind & pop alot agian especially when I would do any shruging motions.I know popping isn’t a big deal but a few days later there was a lot of pain. My ortho sent me for a mri & ct scan for snapping scapula. They both came back negative. then I got two cortisone shots in the bursa that made it worse.
I finally started using a therapist who works with the NY Rangers.He told me that my rhomboids muscles were weakened by my neck injury. It’s been three weeks and i feel beter. Oddly my right shoulder hurts a little bite.
What I wanted to know is if any one has experienced this problem , & maybe give me some ideas for rehab & a routine. Also Because of my neck (c5-c6)fusion are there any alternative exercises i can do instead of standing dumbell or barbell shrugs so i can develop my traps.
