Years Riding: Longer than most of you have been alive. And I'm still slow.
How you found us: The voices in my head told me to come here
See a doctor! One of my employees has age related tendon problems and waited till it "got bad" before seeing a doctor. She now has multiple torn tendons in her R shoulder and is looking at major surgery with long and painful rehab. I've had my own sports injuries requiring surgery too. In both cases, getting to a doctor early would have reduced the long term effect and minimized surgery.
As I understand it: Ice reduces swelling and inflamation. Heat restores the blood flow encouraging healing, relaxes the muscles and reduces pain. I'm big on ice.
There is nothing firm, nothing balanced, nothing durable in all the universe. Nothing remains in its original state, each day, each hour, each moment, there is change. Change is the essence of life. Embrace change as you do life. To fight change is to live in the past.
