kobukan - Your RR is much needed medicine for this soul. I have been couped up with a nasty cold, and seeing a story like this warms me as much as a good bowl of soup, and a warm fire. It gets me thinking about my next big trip. Keep em coming.

I normally don't take a lot of pics when I ride, and I don't really do ride reports - I hope you guys didn't get too tired of me cluttering up the thread with all these pics - and if you did, blame the guys that kept asking for more.
Thanks Kobukan all the pics and RR have been a great distraction to my season of non riding

Sweet!

Although, I'd be happy with a long winding dirt road and one vista after the next.

About 4.5 months ago I started feeling some pain in my shoulder. I connected that to picking up a tractor counter weight with my brother in law and putting it in the truck. Small tug, little discomfort, not much drama.

Over the course of 3 months I continued to lose motion in my shoulder, pain increased and I was loosing sleep. I wasn't shaking this off.

After the usual poking and prodding, xrays and MRI, I was told I have adhesive captivitas. WTF?

They do not know for sure what causes it but basically the fluids in the joint start getting sticky and binding down your movement. There is a great deal of off the charts pain.

If doing nothing, range of motion comes back in 1.5 - 2 years on its own.

Or, you can do PT. You can also have it forced to move in a machine, or even some surgery. My doc suggested yesterday that I keep up the PT. After 6 weeks I have regained about 50% range of motion that I lost in that shoulder. Wooohoooo!

I can still ride, but want to be pain free and I'm working at it. There is no way I can ride like I always have but I expect to be able to again and sooner rather than later.

All I can think of is what a good friend of mine said....

"Welcome to your 50's".

Great pics and description. Thanks for taking the time to post. You may have inspired a road trip.

is that the same as or called "frozen shoulder"? Wife has had that twice and there is 1 physical therapist in Bangor area who knows just how to deal with it. Sounds very similar...and yes she did get past it and is not bothered by it...

Yup, same thing. I call the PT place, little shop of horrors.

Glad to hear, first hand, that it worked out. I keep hearing this is the case.

Starting to look promising for the start of the riding season.

I think the PT my wife went to knew just how far to push it each time to get some of those little thingys broke loose each time without too much pain

The only thing worse that working with MS Access is fixing something that was built by someone that has NO idea what a relational database is.
