So I think I’m injured. At first I thought I just slept funny on my arm funny but after doing some research, I think I’ve injured my rotator cuff. I did what you’re not supposed to do and self diagnosed myself on a website that asked me a series of questions and determined that I should see a doctor because I could have an injured rotator cuff. I did some research in to possible causes and doing too many push ups can cause this type of injury.
So what now? Well I have a lot more research to do. There are a variety of exercises that can be used to rehab a rotator cuff. I’m doing some ice therapy. I iced my shoulder muscles for an hour tonight and an hour yesterday. After icing I feel a lot better.
Mostly I’m just bummed. I’ve been doing so well and I don’t want to be slowed down by an injury. In a way, I can turn this in to a positive. It’s another opportunity for me to share with you, the reader, about an injury and hot to fix it. I’m not a doctor but I can always tell you what I did that made a difference.
I’ll try to post more about this tomorrow. Short post tonight. I’m going to go rest and enjoy the evening with my wife.
