    Yeah, I've been dealing with shoulder problems for 30yrs and have had several injections over the years. The last one was about two months ago but didn't seem to due much, that's why I decided to go back to an Ortho Dr. Last time was 2009. Back then they thought it was bursitis, maybe it was back...

    I've been working extremely hard on lessening the stress on my shoulder, but there is only so much you can do. I don't know what you consider high doses of NSaids. I usually take 800 mg Ibuprofen in the morning and 400 - 600 mg of Naproxon in the evening. Never tried topical meds, didn't think they...

  • Yeah, if you have a van already then that's a smart move. I'd try and buy local, like Craigs List. Two times I bought from EBay, there was damage from shipping....

    I have been thinking about seeing an Ortho again, it's been @ 10yrs. Been seeing a pain management doc the last 5 or 6 yrs, mainly for my back.

    I'm a little confused. I believe in therapy, spent many years doing mass amounts. But my shoulder just plain hurts no matter what the movement is. The only thing that seems to help is reducing the amount I do and NSAIDS. Cortisone not helping much or for long now a days, plus that's only allowed...

  • I'm very close to your situation. C5/6 (but incomplete). Injured In 1977, Feb will be 44yrs. I drug my self around on crutches for @ 15yr. Because of shoulder problems started using a manual chair around the house and crutches at work. Again because of shoulder a few years ago started using...

    Transfermaster Mattress

    Has anyone had the Ascent 1 mattress that Transfermaster sell to use with their Supernal Hi-Low?? I hate to buy a mattress without checking it out in person. They say it's firm, I need a firm mattress to make rolling from side to side easier. Thought about buying a low profile mattress from somewhere...

    replied to transferring to dental chair
    Well it's been almost two years so I'd thought Id check if anything new has come a long. Plus I got an appointment tomorrow so it was on my mind.

    I know over head lifts and systems for staying in your chair are available but my question is - How do you find an office that have one of...
