pondering



I'm feeling a little frustrated with my body in the last few days - while I've come a long way, I'm feeling stuck where I am, and I still need to lose more weight.

I'm also feeling that my exercise program needs an update. I'm not sure I really want to shell out the cash to get a trainer to do it for me, though, so it is time to hit the books.

I'm also fairly frustrated with my shoulder - it's clear now that the injuries I've done to my shoulders have messed something up in a long-term manner, and I'm going to have to do something about it beyond just taking it easy for a while to let it heal, since it seems to start hurting with less and less provocation. Since I've managed to have enough pain to keep me from lifting my arm for a couple days when I wasn't at the gym, and then had that pain go away after a gym night, I am wondering if it's more something being misaligned than damaged muscle at this point. Or maybe it's related to that massive knot on my right shoulder blade.

Which leads me to pondering about what to do about it - if it's a misalignment, perhapos I should be looking at chiropractic, or an RMT. Physiotherapy should, I suppose, also be on my list. I'll need to see what work's insurance covers. I'm a little distrustful of chiropractic, having had a spent several years of regular chiropractic before discovering that the immediate benefits could be reproduced with regular stretching. On the other hand, I could just be seeing the down side of stopping chiro now.

Anyone have any strong opinions on what I should do? I'd consider asking my doctor, but it's not worth the wait to ask a quick question like this. Maybe I should have an LJ poll! (except I'm too lazy to go build one just now. Maybe later.)

Hmm, that's interesting because I seem to recall a story on public radio not too long ago regarding fewer doctors going into general or family medicine because they perceive it as being less rewarding, gives them less pay and forces them to work longer hours. So many are choosing to go into specialities. Which would explain why it's a production trying to see a "regular" doctor around here.

Have you considered exploring Reiki? I've heard good things about it for chronic pain.
