The Pain From My Frozen Shoulder Sometimes Made Me Cry
I first saw Simeon Niel Asher in March 2000 with a right sided ‘classic frozen shoulder’ - at least, that is what the surgeon told me. I was in constant pain and couldn’t sleep; it was as if my life was plagued. As a professional model I was using my arms all the time and had to smile for the camera, even though I often wanted to wince. At times the pain actually made me cry.
My problem had been on going for over a year before I saw Simeon. The pain had gradually worsened and then became unbearable. I had been to my GP who had given me two steroid injections; which didn’t help. I had seen a physiotherapist about 30 times and had seen two other Osteopaths and a manipulative physical therapist; all to no avail. I was desperate and when the surgeon told me he wanted to manipulate my shoulder under anesthetic. In truth, I was scared.
When I heard about trigger points and their connection to frozen shoulder, it seemed to make sense. I happened to live near Simeon's clinic and booked myself an appointment with the man himself. By that stage I was willing to gamble on anything that might help ease the pain.
So here's the reason why I offered to write this ...
Within three sessions my pain had disappeared. On the fourth session I was totally cured. Sounds crazy, I know. But it also saved my career, which is why I'm happy to be an "unpaid" ambassador for NAT. And why I've been hooked on trigger point therapy ever since!
