  •  I can swim with two really bad shoulders (7+ / 0-)

    I can't do the backstroke because my left shoulder is caput, but I can manage to swim about 20 laps in an olympic size pool with just some sore muscles afterwards. It looks weird, it's slow, but it's exercise. Lots of legwork comes in handy.

        I'm still doing therapy and so far my frozen shoulders are limbering up. It's a long process (years, not months) and the rest of the body gets really exercised as well.

        This is one area where I really feel for the guy.  Heck, it's probably the only area.
