    My shoulder's still pretty sore, done a bit more damage than I was intially hoping. Off to the physio again.

    Bugger - that's no good. You did land really hard on it. Now I know what you meant when you said you arrived home a bit crook. Good luck with the physio. As Angus said, if you get a good one they can really help as you probably already know. Panadol has its place too.

    Yeah I've been dropping anti-inflammatories to get through cricket on Saturdays but will have to go see someone when that's finished in a couple of weeks. Can't really lift my arm above my head at certain angles so that's probably a sign... It made for pretty good gopro footage though, so at least that's something. o_O

    Well I would pretty much recommend you stop on the anti-inflams, you've been back what, 2 weeks+ now? That's too long on anti-inflams to just 'get you through', you are going to do more serious damage the longer you are on them.

    Also, go see a physio if it works for you. Personally I think they are all rubbish, and i've been to a LOT of physios, including one who is head honcho at an AFL club. You may have put joints/bones out of place, physios are qualified to put them back into place. My action plan when I do an injury is 1 - Chiro, 2 - Myo/deep tissue massage/acupuncture/cupping etc 3 - Sports doc for a MRI referral. There's no point being rehabilitated by physio/myo/osteo if the joint/bone is out of place, it's a waste of time. Get everything aligned properly first. The fact you cant lift your arm above your head 'on certain angles' suggests to me that something is out of alignment.

    Only popping the anti-inflams on Saturdays for cricket, not flat out for 2 weeks. I'll go with my Physio first, he did a good job with my ankle last year so gotta back him in.

    "Out of place" is a dislocation. Sounds like chiro ooga-booga speak to me.

    I've skied in the clone trooper about 4-5 times at Nozawa......
    Meanwhile, Nozawa's "darth vader" sips lemon lime & bitters down in the safety of the town...... ;)

    Looks like a need for the Empire to Strike Back....



    The funniest thing about skiing in the clone trooper, is the number of Japanese people who say "Dahsu Beda" (Darth Vader) ROFL

    It's certainly not severe, just on going and inconvenient. Doubt it's a tear but fill find out from the physio soon enough.

    probably had as much today in Kyoto as I did in NO for a week (slight exaggeration) :)

    anyways if there was a week to pull a ligament (there is really never a week for this) it was the one I had....

    If you can't cook, you can eat. If you can't eat you can't ski. If you can't ski you die. Glad you're cookin.
