    Back around '84 or '85, I was working out and hurt my median deltoid in my shoulder very badly. I had to wait for sometime for it to heal (I cant remember how long now). And ever since, I have had to take care not to strain that muscle again. It has never liked to be worked since.

    Tonight my personal trainer was starting me on an incline press and I immediately felt it and warned him that I had to take it easy. He took me back to the mats, put me thru several tests, and found out that my left collar bone has been dislocated all this time. He popped it back in and I immediately had greater strength in that shoulder. I am amazed!

    You owe your personal trainer several drinks! (Is he cute?)

    Cas- Please put your trainer on a plane to New Orleans. My elbow has been killing me and my bench press is suffering.icon_lol.gif I'll send my chiropractor out as a trade.

    I didnt have to pay for what my personal trainer did....other than the normal cost of the workout session.

    Oh boy, only 24 more minutes to eat what I want...then I am on that cleanse ... lord, how do I get into these things!?!?!?!

    Well, Caslon, I'm glad to hear it seemed to have helped BUT a word of caution to any of you working with or considering working with a personal trainer....DO NOT let them do this kind of manipulation on you unless you KNOW they are trained to do so. We are not doctors, or chiropractors and in general should NOT be doing these types of things on people no matter how much we think it MIGHT help. So if they offer to "pop" something back into place or "diagnose" that you have this or that problem with your spinal alignment....fine, get it checked out by someone who knows what they are doing. No offense intended to your trainer Caslon but (not knowing him or his qualifications) this is something he probably should NOT have done to you.

    I agree, Shortnsexystud. I was a tad surprised by his action. The only bit of mitigating information is that he has/had this problem is very familiar with it....and I guess the treatment. The chiropractor I spoke with is very familiar with my PT and told me about his familiarity with the problem and treatment. But it is a bit like practicing medicine without a license.
