See the shoulder above, it’s not Adrienne’s, but her’s looks nothing like this. Her top shoulder bone actually curves down, but that’s really just an anomaly and not the reason she’s injured her arm/shoulder.
Yesterday I took her to the Orthopedist’s office, and he told her she has tendinitis/bursitis and that the way to heal it is to rest it. It hurts when she raises her arm up, not so good for a catcher or a softball player. He was a great Dr, he specializes in sports medicine and he said rest is the best thing and he would suggest a shot of cortisone and maybe some PT. So although she was not in favor of the shot, we got it, good golly, ever seen one of those needles? But I held her hand and she got it. We all agreed to 2 weeks off playing/practicing, and taking NSAID’s and icing her arm. He wanted a few weeks off, but we’ll see how it feels in 2.
What caused this, no one knows, maybe over use, maybe an odd throw, who knows, it bothered her a month ago and we had some time off, but as soon as she went back to playing it was hurting again.
Was she upset? Well yes, we told him she was suppose to be in a college showcase this weekend and he looked at us like we were crazy to ask if she could play!!
So my girl is down for a bit, but she’ll be okay.
