Messed up my shoulder...
A few weeks ago as you remember, I hit a rock going across that lake on my snowmobile. I thought my sled and I faired well considering how fast and hard the sled hit the rock, and how hard I hit the ice and started doing cartwheels.
Well I knew I landed hard, but I play hard and thus figured it was nothing, just a little pain in my shoulder.
Well after 4 visits to my chiropractor, she said something she has never said in the 4 years that I have been seeing her. "There is nothing I can do for you."
Its odd because I have full range of motion, but my shoulder just hurts. Not like giving birth pain, but a constant, sharp ache that just never goes away. I can do anything with it, it just hurts when I do it.
She suggests I go see my regular doctor and go down the x-ray, MRI path, but we all know that is where you get co-payed to death. The shoulder is a pretty complex joint anyway so I think it just needs time to heal. I'm going to let it buck and see how I feel after snowmobile season is over with.
Its just kind of odd that I can move it around, it just hurts constantly and no amount of manual therapy, muscle stimulant therapy or ultra sound therapy is helping. Any idea what my issue is?
I have no intention of traveling from birth to the grave in a manicured and well preserved body; but rather I will skid in sideways, totally beat up, completely worn out, utterly exhausted and jump off my tractor and loudly yell, "Wow, this is what it took to feed a nation!"
