HI Liz - Thanks for letting us know! You sound like you're doing great. Can you tell us some background... like, how long you had FS before you had the MUA, and how long ago you had the MUA?

Hi! I have had FS manipulation by a great orthopedic surgeon. I was put to sleep, my shouler was manipulated and I also received steroid injections. I didn't even have to go to Physical Therapy. I had a great outcome and continue to be doing well. Don't worry or maybe for your peace of mind get a second opinion. I'd like to know what you end uo doing. Take care. Liz

I had shoulder surgery in Feb 2004. I fell on the shoulder 3 weeks after surgery. I have been going to PT for all this time (not consistently though because its quite painful). The doc says its time to do manipulation. An anesthesiologist will inject me, I have to get in a car and be driven to his office where he will do the mainpulation. Has anyone had this experience? Please send your advice.

I had three weeks of grueling physical therapy before my manipulation. They were trying to break up the adhesions. I was back in physical therapy the day after my manipulation. It was VERY painful. The physical therapist said I had highly inflammed tissue from the manipulation. After weeks of pool therapy and ranging, I am now doing everything pain-free. I am in the wellness program now, which means I go in and do my exercises under the therapists watchful eye--just no more hands-on therapy. I can't say if I would be doing this well if I hadn't gone to Physical Therapy. I also had massage therapy once a week and I am continuing with that. It helped during the painful stage and now I think it is helping with my stretching.

Thanks for your reply, it helps to hear other people's timeline for healing. I guess the doctor(s) don't have enough "time" to discuss the range of possibilities. I pretty much had the impression that surgery would take care of everything within a few weeks. Wrong! How is your PT, is it very painful? A lot of people seem to be warning not to go to aggressively or you could reinjure it, my doc told them to be aggressive. I don't mind some pain and being pushed beyond my limits, but the other day it was so bad that I cried for a long time after. I have cancelled subsequent appointments unitl I figure out the next best approach, which may be a new ortho and therapist. In the meantime I am stretching and my husband is massaging it which seems to help.

Hello, I had shoulder manipulation done on March 23 of this year. I continued to have trouble sleeping and pain during physical therapy for exactly one month after the manipulation. I am now completely off the Percacet, but am continuing physical therapy. My range of motion is still not completely back, but I am now functioning like a human being!

Thanks for your reply. I'm inspired to switch doctors. How long has it taken you and where are you in the healing process? Does your physical therapy hurt to the point of nausea? Should it? Thanks. Janet.

I'm just glad to hear that I'm not the only one whose doctor doesn't tell her what to expect. I finally got a doc who communicates with me at all and seems to care, but they sure do make you feel like they have ten more patients lined up to see. And if you're a workers' comp case, that makes it more complicated and you have a lot of political junk taking up the valuable appt time so you don't get important questions asked or answered.
