Hello Dr Hoellering,
Thanks for answering my question. Just to confirm, I am female, 48 years old. I looked at my scans and I also have a military neck.
So are you saying that there is no other solution other than physiotherapy?
If I want to be referred to a consultant to get the right physiotherapy treatment that you mentioned, please can you advise what type of consultant I need to be referred to. I am in the UK so want to ask my GP to refer this privately in order to fast track as I am in so much pain.
My GP isn't very good and it has taken many years to finally be referred to a consultant who diagnosed my impingement and arthritis for my shoulder pain so I don't want this to take a long time too.
I'm not sure if it is relevant bu I have also have Positive ANA, they are unclear at the moment if this will develop into Lupus or Arthritis but I already have been diagnosed with arthritis in my finger and shoulder (I am having surgery on my finger too in a couple of weeks).
So with everything going on, I would like to get some treatment on my shoulder as soon as possible but just need to know what type of consultant I need to be referred to in order to ask for physiotherapy.
