I went to the chiropractor today. OUCH!! He moved my arm up & around and it really, really hurt :(
Now I'm supposed to ice it as much as I can. *sigh*
Next stop is the Urgent Care on Saturday, because they will do an x-ray AND a cortisone shot. Ugh.
I just got my notice of temporary hire for summer school in the mail today. I'm praying this all helps so I can do my summer job...
No word back yet on whether this is a worker comp claim or not. I did today's visit on my regular insurance.
I understand a frozen shoulder can 'just happen' for people between 40-60 years old. Twice as much in women as in men. The best treatment appears to be cortisone & physical therapy.
If it's bursitis, there's usually a cause or injury. The chiropractor couldn't tell one way or the other, which is why we need the x-ray. The cortisone works for bursitis as well.
There may still be an MRI to determine any tissue damage, but it's probably one of these other two.
At least the aches & pains of getting old is still better than the alternative.....
UPDATED: I have become what I have sneered at.
