Codman exercises will probably help if it's impingement. Basically, take some [light] weight and support your body more or less so your torso is horizontal and let your impinged arm make some small circles. Helps to decompress the shoulder area.

(looks up from navel)

Of all the things you mentioned you were eating in your first post, I'd go with the nightshades. Biggest bang for the buck in my treatment of pain patients.

If you really do it right, you might not have to worry at all about those other things (at least until you're older and more drastic measures need to be taken).

OK.

What's next after nightshades, cuz frankly I eat potatotes or tomatoes about once every two weeks and not usually by choice, they're just not my thing....except A-1 steak sauce, that is a food group in our house.

A-1 steak sauce ED or EOD would be plenty especially if large amounts are taken. There are tomatoes and peppers in it, plenty enough to keep the problem going and exacerbating:

Quote:
TOMATO PUREE (WATER, TOMATO PASTE), DISTILLED VINEGAR, CORN SYRUP, SALT, RAISIN PASTE, CRUSHED ORANGE PUREE, SPICES AND HERBS, DRIED GARLIC AND ONION, CARAMEL COLOR, POTASSIUM SORBATE (TO PRESERVE FRESHNESS), XANTHAN GUM.
You won't know if this is the main culprit until all of them are out of your diet. I'd guess that you'd notice significant improvement in two weeks of strict avoidance. This would mean avoiding all paprika in processed meats and anything that says "spices" on an ingredient list.

Curious, do you know your blood type? This is in regards to the nightshade issue specifically...

Well, I said I'd try anything. Strict avoidance it is.

potatoes, tomatoes, eggplant, cherries, peppers, sweet peppers, chili peppers but not black peppers, paprika, tobacco and petunias,

Damn, I'll miss the petunias. Don't know my blood type, it appears red.

also,

tried those Hartzell shoulder stretches today, very good stretch from those, thanks Alan. Will do the push up things tonight.

the codman things are weird, will need to give a go with a little more weight.

Peter who used to post here says the shoudler horn worked for him so I'll try that as well at soem point.

RE: EQI Pushups

I've had the best success holding it for 60+ seconds on parallettes that are pretty high off the ground. So I'd say blocks that are 12" would be good.

Don't forget the Goji/wolf berries and the Cape gooseberries from your list...

what's the upside of higher blocks? Is it to sink into a deeper stretch or lessen the back angle..what am I shooting for here?

You end up sinking into a depper stretch as you go, (which is of course the point of EQI's). When I would do it on pushup handles, by the end of 90 seconds I'd end up laying on the floor.
