i dislocated my shoulder and did some serious damageabout 3 months ago this was on top of a long term lingering shoulder injury from 18 months ago i've had intensive physio and cortisone shots but they never really did anything. this past monday i was unable to do a 20kg bench with out my shoulder giving me excruciating pain like i'd been stabbed. and i couldn't hold my own weight on two arms like you do before you perform dips. so on monday whilst in town to find some wieght loss pills to stem the flow of pounds i wondered into a chinese medicine shop. and signed up for acupuncture and a course of herbal pills. it cost 197 for a course of two types of pills and 5 sessions off acupunctuer. i've had it every day this week as well as taking the pills 4 sessions and now i can do 4 dips (at 272) and do 10 shoulder presses with my 16kg kettlebell without any pain at all!
