Anyway, has anyone done PT for a shoulder injury? Can I try the exercises at home without committing to going somewhere? Is it worth going to? Apparently you need a prescription for PT, which he gave me - but I think going 12 times seems excessive.
Go to the PT!! 12 times is not excessive.

I've damaged my left shoulder twice ... started going to PT but moved halfway through the sessions and didn't pick them up again. I'm still struggling with that shoulder years later.
