Do you know what exactly caused your shoulder issue? The same condition may have occurred if you never exercised. It may have even developed earlier. It is possible the exercise was protective. It is really impossible for anyone to know for sure unless you can pinpoint the initial injury.

Only have one life would much rather live it being active and exercising every day than sitting on the couch hoping something doesn't happen to me...
Right...and perhaps there is something in between a marathon every month and being bubble-wrapped on a couch? At some REASONABLE point you get 80% of all the benefit of physical activity withOUT tearing your body down - that's what I'm aiming for - not advanced arthritis and multiple tears.

Geez! Lost this thread and just found it again. Thank you jaminhealth for your input. I was a big believer in the blood injections AND prolotherapy and was REALLY bummed that neither worked this time. And they cost $200 each time so I really can't afford to keep trying something with no guarantee of success.

I am doing acupuncture and rolfing and just very discouraged that I see no improvement. In 2 weeks it will be 6 months since the tendinosis or injury began.

There is no guarantee to anything we try, hip replacements for sure, been there and live with the complications. I will be trying prolo again next year with the D.O. who was helping me and along with his bodywork I was off ibuprofen for some months. The D.O. says he adds hylagen solution to the dextrose so I'm looking forward to connecting with him again next year and talking heart to heart too.

Nothing is 100%, but if I can get some relief, 20-30% or so that is good.

I've done acupunture and rolfing years ago -- the body just breaks down, wear and tear. But we have to keep trying to manage. I do for sure.

If there was an automated machine that could diagnose and list every medical problem as a Human walks though it..........most people would have page after page of scary stuff listed. Just try to live a healthy life and ignore it if it is not giving you trouble.

Here's what my Dr said about Hylagen... I never tried HYALGAN® with prolotherapy. Not sure it would help. HYALGAN® (hyaluronic acid) is a visco-lubricant in that it lubricated a joint such as the knee. If it is an arthritis problem, it may help. Platelet Rich Plasma and Dehydrated Amniotic Membrane are more effective for muscle and tendon problems such as yours. I have used HYALGAN® in the past for knee arthritis, but never with prolotherapy.
