I have recurring rotator cuff issues on my left side. I describe it as happily tying in / opening a door / brushing my hair only to suddenly feel as if somebody were stabbing me in the shoulder with a screwdriver, and twisting. I have had PT a few times over the years. Now I know the routine that works for me: - Take some time off - Vitamin I when needed - Bust out the resistance bands / light weights and work those opposing muscles (there are plenty of exercises to be found online) - Push ups - Massage (when I can afford it) PT is amazing. Once they show you a routine - follow it. I hope you feel better!
