After an athroscopic SAD procedure ten weeks ago, despite disturbed sleep virtually every night, I did feel that the daytime pain was improving a bit. However, at my last (final) physio appointment, it was felt that I could move on to strengthening exercises as my ROM was pretty good. I have tried to push through with these, which consist of the use of a theraband, but it seems to be a backward step. I have even cut back on the amount of reps for each movement but it appears to have really aggravated my shoulder joint and I feel I have pretty much gone backwards and had a couple of really horrific nights with regard to pain.
Now I'm not sure if I should hold fire on this and let things settle or continue. I should add that I am using the affected side as much as possible, filling the kettle, opening doors, reaching into high cupboards etc. but I guess these movements in themselves will not necessarily strengthen the shoulder particularly. Anyone have any thoughts on this?
