I got there 15 minutes early, to ensure that the MRI had been sent. No, they hadn’t received it. So the receptionist started phoning the imaging center, only to be put on hold with 5 others. She was still holding on when I went in.
I explained the whole lot of really not knowing what was going on, and he started gently moving the arm in all directions. The only time it hurt was when it was bent, as in lifting, and brought upwards.
I did the pully, where the right hand would be lowered so the left arm/shoulder would be gently lifted high in the air, and then I did it to 45 degrees. From there I went on the bicycle where you only use your upper body. I did 10 minutes on a slow speed. From here I had a squashy ball, and did exercises pushing back, forward, and to the side. From here I did the one where my arm and hand are flat on a table, with a cloth underneath, and bring my fingers are far forward as possible, and then at a 30 degree angle.
I forget the first one, where I brought the pole of my head, and held it for 6 seconds, and repeated it 30 times. Finally I had ice on it for 10 minutes.
During this time the receptionist brought paperwork in from the imaging center with only their logo on it, nothing else. So he had no MRI to see exactly what had happened, just what I had told him, and when I felt pain.
I have booked 2 more for next week, and will do these exercises at home. I have the suspension bands that I can put over the door to make a pully.
The photo is what I am aiming to do again with my left shoulder. Says lots of prayers.
