Rushing Things Can Be Foolish

This past week was a rough one. I finished my 9th Physical Therapy treatment to remove the s-curve from my back as well as to replace the natural cervical curvature to my neck. The therapy is aggressive and has been painful at times. Now that the spine is being manipulated and trained back to its intended posture, my left shoulder weakness (or scar tissue) has been rearing its ugly head. I guess that my spine had moved to compensate for my left shoulder after its injury, subsequent surgery, and 4 months of excruciating physical therapy. Now that spine is being forced to abandon that compensation, and it is forcing the shoulder to release, the tendons, ligaments, and muscles are lengthening and I am knotting up. Spasms suck. So needless to say, this has not been easy. Lidocaine shots into trigger points has been all but daily occurrence in an effort to get these spasms to release. I have been foam rolling with the Rumbleroller using a trigger point ball to work on these areas too. I know that when I was doing Yoga in P90X and X2 I always felt better and stronger in basically everything. I have to believe that it was because I was more flexible. So on that note, in an effort to become more flexible I have started playing with PiYo and have decided to run through the whole program starting tomorrow!
