The Shoulder Report

Tuesday, August 07, 2012

Diagnosis:
Tiny bit of arthritis on top of the shoulder and most of the pain is soft tissue meaning muscular, properly called right shoulder posterior impingement.

The Plan:
physical therapy twice a week for 4 weeks with an option to extend if needed.

Predicted Outcome:
full recovery except for the arthritis.

Not sure yet how swimming over the next couple months will go. That will be on a play it by ear basis. If swimming hurts, well, then I shouldn't be swimming. That means I can't register for a September triathlon for at least a few weeks until it's clearer how fast my shoulder is rehabbing.

I see the PT on Monday, and their office is less than a mile from my house. Feels very good to have a plan in place and hope for the recovery process.

    Yikes! How did you hurt your shoulder? I had to have my right shoulder rebuilt due to "impingement".

    PT is a pain. But I am sure you will stick with it.

    Thanks, Bruce

    I am glad it isn't permanent. Hubby has a real bout of Arthritis in his shoulder as well. But the good news, movement is good for that, so hopefully you will be able to distinguish between good/ not so good movement the next few weeks. PT should be a great thing though -- I bet you learn tons!!!
