    Now - TEN YEARS after I first lost function on the left side - Today I managed to rotate the left shoulder joint in its socket. icon_biggrin.gif

    This is the result of daily intense self-administered physio (as I was first taught).

    Over the past month I began trying to design for myself a series of strenuous muscle & tendon realignment exercises every day (with one day off of total rest each week).

    I'm finally making progress!

    now that I'm actually starting making some perceptible gains again, I am motivated to refine these exercises and draw them against the musculoskeletal anatomical drawing.

    I'm all about connections right now, which isleading me to have to trace the major nerves too.

    For example I have found a spot under the chin in the throat where one can press against the tendons that turn the wrist.

    If it is not properly aligned, my wrist will not turn. I can massage it into position (I can feel it "click" into alignment.) Immediately my hand relaxes and I can turn my wrist.

    I have traced that line right from my neck, across my back (there is where Danny has to help me while I guide him verbally. once he traces to my upper thigh, I can resume the trace myself) right down to the top of my left foot.

    I started finding all this in the shower one day doing a testicular self exam ( in the wake of another cancer awareness campaign) and I could feel the tendons.

    I just started following them to see what connected to what. To my total shock, the simple act of interlacing my fingers into my left toes (spreading my toes) gave me a jolt along the network of tendons that I felt all over my body. - including my mostly insensate side
    I began humming "the toe bone is connected to the wrist bone..

    I've been working on daily alignment ever since.

    Today my hand laid open and relaxed for hours -- it typically clenches into a always tense clawlike grip -- which gave me total relaxaton of my left arm and hand -- and I felt sensation all over my arm. For the first time since 2000 I felt an itchy ticklish palm icon_biggrin.gif

    Then I slept for three hoursicon_lol.gif

    Tomorrow zee vorld!
