Shoulder injury, any thoughts?
18 months ago, I took a fall from a horse and my left shoulder took the brunt of the fall. Over a couple of months and some chiropractic care, it seemed to heal. Earlier this year I re-injured it, not really sure how, maybe using a crowbar. For 8 months now it has ached and caused me grief. I've been back to my chiropractor and he thought I had a tear but should probably get it checked out re x-ray and ultrasound to see exactly what we're dealing with. Came back with a tear to the supraspinatus, bursitis and early signs of osteoarthritis. With a suggestion I should consider a steroid injection. Being the natural way woman that I am, I then sought out a TCM acupuncture practitioner. 4 treatments in 3 weeks had not solved my problem. Then I tried massage, heat packs, not much relief. Back to the chiropractor and he has advised me to get the steroid injection. I have fought this train of help for some time now but being in constant pain is no fun and I've had a gutful. I'm going on Friday to my GP to get a referral to have the steroid injection. So have I given it a fair crack? Is there anything I've missed?
