Hey, everyone, I am a baseball pitcher. I used to do repetitive arm movement. From last month onwards I am suffering from severe pain in my shoulder and I am not able to throw as powerful as before. My shoulder has pain accompanied with weakness. I went to a clinic nearby my place. The doctor there asked me to carry out Xray, but nothing appeared in it. So the doctor gave some painkillers and asked me to carry out ultrasound. In ultrasound, it was clear that I was suffering from rotator cuff injury. He asked me to take rest and keep ice. But the pain caused was interfering with my sleep, so the doctor asked me to take an injection that can help me in reducing the pain. He told that if the pain continues, go for Arthroscopic tendon repair surgery. When I told about this surgery my friend told me to go to a chiropractor who treats sports injuries in Toronto. Will that help me? Is there any other alternative that I can try so that my pain can be reduced?
Hi Marachel, sure, a good chiropractor might be able to help you, and so might good massage therapy. Those options are definitely worth a try. Many times they can work better than conventional drug therapy or surgery. Of course nobody can give you specifics via this forum, but I have seen many people get better through regular Thai Massage therapy, provided there is a skilled and experienced practitioner available.
I obviously don't know the severity of your condition, and therefore I don't know what the best treatment could be. But in general massage can be helpful with such conditions.
