    OHhh, Babz...I am SO HAPPY for you!! I don't know about you, but, if I can't freely move, I become pretty unhappy...! Again, I'm happy you got better!

    I don't know how it happened and I don't know how it is better but
    one morning I woke and all the pain gone and I have full mobility in
    my arm again !!

    Hope it stays like this !!

    Back again...I have a little more mobility in my shoulder and upper arm
    so the exercises are doing the business !!

    I am not really bothered how long it takes I just know that it will if I
    do as told !!

    I shall ask the physio about putting heat around the neck, she is used to
    me questioning her...lol

    If blessed was asking me how it happened...I don't know...one morning
    I just couldn't lift with right hand and things got gradually worse
    to the stage of not being able to hold even a cup !!

    I think they work, but people want it today. People are being shuffled in and out of the hospital so fast, it's more like the local Jiffy-lube!

    By the way -- hysterical women??? How ancient is your doctor anyway?

    So, Blessed11, you DO KNOW that all these therapies really work! That's cool. Y'know, I know so many people that just give up when they don't get results in one or two weeks...mine took months of hard work...and just stubboen repetitions...it's so sad when people just quit!

    I used to be a COTA, but gave it up because of the insurance issues and stuff, it was getting more and more twisted into a type of physical therapy which blew the whole philosophy behind it.

    Blessed11, Are you 'talking' to me? I was in a car wreck, and severly injured; I 'went through' physical therapy, speech therapy, and occupational therapy (I was really 'messed up' from the injury)---all this takes time, and a real determination to see it through to the end, but, in most cases, all this does work...So, Babz...just keep at it! Progress will be slow, and it will be in bits...but, the body DOES respond to therapy...e-mail when yoiu get discxouraged...and we'll encourage you...just remember to 'put one foot in front of the other'!

    Hi, Babz! Did anyone suggest that U try applying some moist heat to the area of your neck U R stretching? (This helped
    me some when I was a patient.) But, of course, check it out with your therapist. It sounds like your exercises are working...you are getting the return of some movement; that's great! "Hang in there"; stick with it...it WILL work. Let us know how U R...OK?!

    Hi blessed

    Its nothing to do with spine as that is ok...don't need more probs
    than I already have...lol

    I have been doing the neck exercises that was told to...not overdoing
    them tho...and I have got a very slight improvement in them, even
    though my neck is aching by night time !!

    Some of the exercise for all the problem are still hard to do but as
    long as I do a couple at least 5 times a day I am getting movement !!

    I have to type with my arm resting on my desk to give it support and
    by the time I have finished in here it kills !!

    Hello Babz. Just curious. Are you sure this is all muscle and ligament issues, and not nerve or cervical spine related?

    Babz...it's a GOOD IDEA to try physical therapy first...you're dealing with your health and body now, and need to make sure nothing you're doing is making it worse. Physical therapy should be able to determine that. Physical therapy (PT) takes awhile to work, though. Many people get so impatient with it, though; they expect it to work as fast as...well, as some medicine, and, basically, it doesn't (or, can't!---muscles strengthen, and stretch, but they are NOT rubber bands!). However, in MANY cases, it does work...it takes patience, some hard work (maybe) and perserverence. Good luck! Let us know how you
    re doing...OK? I, for one, look forward to seeing your posts here...

    Wish it was that easy tex, I have been having physio for the last
    few months and it doesn't seem to be getting better...I really
    wanted acupuncture but the doc wanted to let me try physio first !!

    Oh well it does get me out of doing some of the housework...lolololol

    Gotta laugh cos I don't want people to know how bad it is and hurting !!
