So I'm in physical therapy. They manipulate the joint to get the synovial fluid going - to lubricate the joint. That's why you have to keep moving when arthritis sets in.
I've been told to lay off the longer clubs for awhile, been given specific exercises to increase the range of motions and to use heat before and ice after exercise. In one week the range of motion has increased dramatically-I am grateful.
But what I love most is my ice - my pack of frozen peas, one on each shoulder a couple of times a day. Who would ever have thought that ice would feel almost as good as sex? Ice is my savior after a round of golf, it is soothing, calming, healing, and only .99c at the dollar store.
Try it-you'll like it!
