Well today was doctor day. I guess at this point, however, I need to specify. Today I saw the orthopedic. You know what that means right? Lots of waiting around and lots of goofing off.
The last two pictures show the real problem. My external rotation is severely limited. At first glance you probably don't even notice (not in the pictures anyway) but there is a significant difference between rotation in the good arm (top photo) and the bad arm (bottom photo). Nevertheless, what IS obvious (once I point it out to you) is the compensation I have to make in order to get the rotation. Look at the top picture where my shoulders are nice and even; straight across. I'm not compensating to move my right arm out. In the second picture, check out what I have to do just to get my arm to move. I didn't even REALLY know I did this until I looked at the pictures. I mean I know I make compensatory movements but I had no idea it was THAT bad and for such a simple movement.
I'm sure by now you're all bored to tears and asking yourself why you're still reading. I apologize but my mom really wanted to know. So there you go mom!
Who knew one "little" ride would turn into so much a big mess.
That left hand on my hip is just mocking me!
