I've been through PT at least a dozen times for this and that - usually knees, but most recently for my shoulder, both pre and post surgery. If it's painful during and after PT, talk with your physical therapist. If there isn't a satisfactory answer, check with your doctor.

Some of my physical therapists have been too aggressive and have done more damage, or I have done more damage doing their regimen without complaining and getting some better advice. Doing one knee rehab, I wore out the groove that hold the kneecap in place. During another, I developed metatarsalgia from doing too many heel raises. That last left me in a foot cast for months.

My current therapist is a dream. She's tough, but she listens and if something hurts, she'll give me an effective work around. I made amazing progress with my shoulder with her. Despite the fact that I'll need to have a shoulder replacement because of the arthritis, I have full range of motion and enough strength for any normal purpose.

Hi all,
Since I fell have been to the doctor a couple of times, have had a couple of sessions with the xray machine, and one with an MRI. Have been told no broken bones, no torn rotator cuff, no broken shoulder blade, no dislocation. I do have some stretched tendons and muscles, and a nerve that is stuck in my shoulder joint. I have been assured that I'll be back to normal, whatever that is, by April in time to muck about in the garden and plant my onions. Have been seeing the Nazi torturers at the local Physical Rehabilitation center on a regular basis, and am looking forward to another week of painful torment. Well, you know, whatever it takes. That's about it, over 40" of snow so far this winter, and more is falling while I poke at these keys. Maybe April will be too early to plant onions. Take care all of you, the sun is bound to shine sometime. Rich
