SHOULDER

After getting a recent MRI which followed an X Ray, I could not get an MRI according to my MD without an X Ray preceding it, those are the rules of my insurance company! The diagnosis has been changed to a shoulder impingement with bicep tendonitis! Both issues were mentioned in previous posts! Both  are caused by overuse and that dreadful concept known as AGING! I went to PT yesterday and was given specific stretching exercises, I had been doing certain stretches improperly! These basic stretching exercises, I will be getting additional stretching exercises next week, will hopefully provide more "space" for my shoulder to work and move! After ten months of discomfort and no healing I hope to have found the answer! X Rays are not conclusive in all cases! The good news- there is no rotator cuff issues!
