Feeling Better

I made it through class yesterday with minimal pain!  The focus last night was shoulder and chest hooping, something that I can always use work on.  Ryane was aware of my shot, and let me work at my own pace.

What I did was do the technique briefly, and then rest for a minute, rather than to drill the moves over and over again without pause.  Taking things slow did work, because I feel pretty good today.

You are probably thinking, no!  You shouldn’t be doing this after a cortisone shot!  Ah, but my doctor wants me to use the arm and be active.  You see, if you don’t use the arm, the medicine doesn’t worked into the joint and it has a chance to crystallize, which is extremely painful.  Still, if it hurt, I didn’t do it and will continue to follow that path until my pain goes away completely, probably in about two weeks or so.
