I had rotator cuff surgery on March 6th and two weeks ago my ortho suggested I undergo MUA due to stiffness and nerve irritation while in PT. I hesitently agreed to do so and had it done last Monday (7 days ago). For the three days with the pain pump, my ROM was excellent and I was super excited. I removed the pain pump on Thursday and it was felt as though I IMMEDIATLY stiffened up once the meds wore off! My Ortho also cleaned up some tendonitis in my bi-cep and during today's PT I burst into tears from the pain and discomfort in my biceps. The constant pulling was beyond bearable!
has anyone expereinced this form of discomfort after MUA? The discomfort I am feeling is nothing like the one I experienced after my initial surgery. I feel defeated and I feel like I have taken 50 steps backwards. How have any of you managed to get your muscles to relax and push thru the pain? My therapist told me she has never experienced someone's body like mine, in that my muscles just do not relax.
