supraspinatus tendinopati

Post by Hanzo » February 6th, 2018, 12:36 pm

I started experiencing some pain in my left should about 3 months ago. As I mostly noticed it during nighttime, I was wondering if this could be caused by sleeping on my shoulder, and continued to row pretty much as normaly for another 3 weeks, After this I went to the fysio to check it out, and he game me some exersizes to work on. Oddly enough, after about 2 weeks of no rowing, and following the plan, the should pretty much completely gave out, and stuff like putting on a jacked was rather painfull.

After trying with exersize, very little rowing and doing Voltarol 3 times a day, I still had minimal progress, so I got a ultrasound of the shoulder. Seems I have a pretty banged up supraspinatus, and some calcification in the should. Oh joy... I did a search from on the board, and there are several with simial issues it seems. I have been slowely going up to roing 5000m twice to three times a week, but I'm not sure if this is wise or if I'm better of leaving it completely alone.

I did a session of shock was therapy today, was a rather painfull experience but about 50% had very good feedback on this treatment, and the other 50%, nothing. Cost is the same tho :)

Anyone had positive experience with shock way therapy?

I was also recommended two exersizes, one was simply life a 4 pound heave weight on straight arms and hold them out at a 90 degree angel in front of the body, and hold them theref for 40 seconds. Do this 5 time a day. Other was sidewas movement of the arm, at 90 degree and pressing the arm outwards from the body. Guess it's hard to explain, but if anyone tried the same you should know what I'm talking about.

Anyone got any other exersizes that could help speed up recovery, and maybe some experience on if I should stop the rowing, or keep up the 2-3 sessions I do?

With regard to your question about therapy (and to a certain extent your question about exercises), you have to remember that this is not a medical forum and no-one can examine you here, so be very careful with advice you ask for and advice that you receive. Always best to go direct to the relevant physician for advice that some faceless forumite, nice as we are

Have a look at this bloke on YouTube. There are some gentle exercises there that will aid recovery - over a year or so. (Skip the first bit of BS)
