I've been going to the physical therapist regularly for my shoulder, and it is getting better.
Thing is, every time he treats me, he's forcing the shoulder up higher, and out further than it wants to go. He eases it as much as he can, but there's a definite stopping point where I grimace and say, "Yeah - that's it!" And he'll say, "Yup, that's not going any higher." OUCH!!
I'm scheduled through the rest of September, but then I'm going to have to take a break due to change in insurance. As of October 1, my new insurance will take effect. I am going with the least expensive (highest deductible) because about a month later, Lee will get a much better rate for the family than I could get at my job. I will have already been locked in, and can't change my coverage by that time. We'll be double-covered, but mine won't kick in unless there's a big need (which we hope won't happen!).
If I change to a different job that has less hours, my insurance will be gone anyway (my eventual plan) and we'll just have Lee's regardless.
The nice thing is the physical therapist I have is pretty cool. I told him I wouldn't be able to come in October, and he said he was fine with having me come in weekly at no charge so he can keep monitoring my progress. :) Once Lee's insurance kicks in, I'll get the actual therapy again :) Or maybe I'll be better by then? It's supposed to heal faster now that I'm past 90%...
Hi. I still exist, y’all.
