… things would get better, it just turns around and becomes worse again.
I had gone to my masseuse and she used lead to massage my back. That made it feel a lot better but still this nasty problem follows me. My shoulders does absolutely not want to relax completely, on both sides. The right side is worse than the left but none of them ever relaxes. It’s a freak show… and irritating.
I practiced football one day after having the massage, I felt great that day and could move my head in any direction without it hurting. It was kind of amazing. With that I thought that my nervous system would relax and let me become myself again, but no, instead tension got me…
Fucked… Gonna try swimming tomorrow…
Over and out. Caught in a trap.
So here’s the summary for the last two months…
After having been to my physio a last time in May and not having had any real improvements besides some flexability, I decided that the gym was my next task. I’ve been going there since the middle of may 2-3 times a week. It has made my muscles stronger but this is not what has made me feel a lot better…
I had never been to a Naprapath before and since my social security covered that at my local health care center I thought I’d give it a try. This is something new that recently was approved in Sweden so that you can get it at the same price as with a normal doctors visit. It’s normally around 500kr if it’s a private clinic, but with the swedish health care reduction it is normally priced at 150kr, and if you reach the limit of 1100kr then you get the following care for free until next year.
The naprapath felt my spine, checked the lump in my neck on the right side and said that it was the rotator within my neck which was locked up and that had created a muscle lump. I was given an exercice which I will instruct on here.
1. You put your chest out.
2. You squeze your shoulder blades back so that they move inwards and towards each other,
3. then you turn your head to the left so that your ear points upwards, and you look diagonally at the sky, you will then feel a stretch on the right side and maybe even a bit on the left side. Do this on both sides. Don’t forget that the shoulder blades need to be worked back. If there’s a problem with your head rotator then this will fix it eventually, still this has taken me 1½ months to see improvements so don’t give up.
I can feel how this is making my body feel normal again. I will get back to you soon again.
All the best
So… after having been going to the Physio for 7 months it was once again time for something new. I still do some of the exercises the physio taught me though since they releive me and make me smoother, they don’t make me sweat and now I want that. I got a card which said what exercises I should do from an instructor and now I ll be following that for the next couple of weeks. I hope this will work! 🙂
Still hurts in my shoulder but it can become really smooth and I can move like a panther… but then after a little while it is stiff again even though I just trained it for several minutes… but still no changes to my diahpragma and no straightening of the bulked up muscle in the neck… it’s like it is stuck there… Only time it moved and became itself was with the surgery in the mouth…
Will I ever sleep a completely recovering sleep again?
I booked a new appointment with a naprapath. We’ll see what she sais about this?
After having done exercises for 3 weeks with elastics and nothing in particular had happened, I went back to my physio. He then gave a few tips to add to my exercises and sicne then. Things have improved. Stretches for the shoulders and neck have made the muscle more smooth in the neck area and I feel I am on the right track. I sleep a little better at night now and I feel stronger over all in my body. Let it continue!
I’ve used an elastic for two weeks. Been able to see how my body should look like but it doesn’t because the blood flow to the shoulders and diaphragma is too low or too slow because of something else. Whatever that something is I don’t know, but it starts in the neck and goes down the right side of my body to the diaphragma and makes it behave like a deflated baloon…
I’m so tired of this. No answers. Just more questions…
My physio felt the lump in my neck. He said it was the scapulae/trapezius muscles that was twisted back there probably together with a bunch of other muscles. He used som laser on it and gave me an elastic that I will use with certain stretch and strength exercises.
Can’t believe that my first physio didn’t give me these exercises. I started going there in October and now it’s February. Anyhow after trying them out I can really say… those muscles are really weak.
I’ll give it a shot. You’ll hear from me soon.
