Shoulder Pain

Gary, I did have issues in my left shoulder following our first road trip to Rochester, Minn in the fall of ’09. One of my duties as passenger-navigator was reaching behind the driver’s seat with my left arm, picking up from the floor the one gallon, or so, water bottle and then refilling our traveling drinking cups. Additionally, my right arm is severely atrophied forcing ‘overuse’ of the left.

The following March, on a return trip to Mayo the left shoulder MRI indicated tendinopathy. Round after round of P/T, Time, lots of time and lots of rest were the only solutions offered.

I guess I agree with your Dr.- cutback in frequency, intensity and duration of your upper body workouts.
