I am new to the blog, but have been learning a lot! I decided to try prolotherapy before going through surgery in hopes it may work. I have only had one treatment, so I can't really say yet! I had 2 different reads on my MRI, one with slap 2 and one that said it was normal but RC tears... So I guess I am willing to hope Prolo can help with all the instability I have in the shoulder. I can say, however, that acupuncture has saved me from wanting to be cut open as soon as possible and "fixed"! I was in an awful pain cycle with the tightest muscles and problems sleeping. After 2 acupuncture treatments and putting my arm in a sling most of the day to just rest the darn thing, I got relief. Since then I have been going to acupuncture regularly. I highly recommend it for the pain and/or crazy tight muscles that are still trying to protect the shoulder. It helps so much with pain! THat is my 2 cents worth for the moment. I will update if the Prolotherapy does some good!
take care everyone!
