Hi and welcome to the back and neck support forum.
I know there is help for those in ur position.Did u lose ur insurance bcuz of the economy?
U might want to try a University or a clinic.....I would venture to say, that it may be best to get insurance and try to find a way to hold out for the yr.
nething u do at this point is going to cost alot of money...accupuncture....massage.....u may want to look at posture to see if u can hold urself in a way that it is not adjitated.
I wish I had answers for u...maybe another member will comment....
I pray u find relief soon
Thank you for the words of comfort. I have been seeing a chiro for over 10 yrs, and he told me that this would happen. My acupuncturist told me that he could only offer temporary relief, (maybe an hour or two). I am working with an Orthopedic Surgeon who is not charging me for visits and he has been a godsend. I need an MRI and to come up with the money for the surgery. That's the hard part.
Thanks for the good words. I am trying to see the good in this, but it is hard for a Bass player not to have use of their fret hand.
Thank you for listening.
U were very fortunate in deed to find the Ortho Surgeon that will treat u and not charge....I hope u get the money soon for ur MRI.
May I ask the type of music u play??
Yeah, the doc is way cool for helping me out. I play a mix of classic rock and doo-wop. I know, it's weird for my age but I love it. I'm hoping to be able to play again soon!
Tell me who u cover......I am curious as to what u consider classic rock...Doo-wop i know....my dd loves all that music too and she is younger than u......I believe it is a form of being well rounded....lol.....
My husband and I both play original music. By classic Rock I mean any Rock and or roll from the late 60's to mid 70's. After that it kind of all goes down hill.
I saw the ortho surgeon today. I need an MRI. He said he can feel a large mass in my left shoulder/neck area. He is making some phone calls to see if he can get me someone to do it for free. This man is a godsend.
I'll keep you posted.
Hi.....wow u said a mouthful...what a great dr!!
Well then the music u r playing is all from my youth....I am sure I'd love to hear some.....
Thanks for the update and I will check back to see when u get the MRI.
