11 Feb No More Shoulder Pain, Thanks To Astym therapy!
I had been having shoulder therapy that was targeted with posture improvement exercises. All was going well after two weeks. Then for some unknown reason I awoke one morning with a very stiff neck. Which I now blame on a pillow.
Within a few days, I was in real agony. I couldn’t raise my head off the bed in the morning without using my hands to support my head. After toughing it out for three days, on a Saturday at 3PM, I decided I wasn’t going to make it through the night. I went to NexCare Urgent Care. The doctor changed my usual Ibuprofen to Naproxen 500mg AM and PM and continued with my Tramadol… which I had been taking with the Ibuprofen. He also prescribed Hydrocodon and tylenol for PM pain relief… which I used for three days. I went back to physical therapy and explained the events.
My therapist angel then began an evaluation and the next step was, now I know, Astym therapy! What an almost instant relief! Absolutely, amazing. I’m a believer! I have also be attempting to shake tendonitis, whether plantar or achilles tendon, I’m not sure, but it’s been treated as plantar fasciitis. I do a 2-3 mile walk with my dog daily… some days more comfortable than others! I’m wondering if Astym therapy would be as therapeutic on this problem, too. I’ll have to contact my podiatrist on that issue.
