When I asked my orthopedic surgeon (who reconstructed my knee after I broke it in soccer) to inspect my painful winged right scapula (on multiple occasions), he always just said "It's winged and protruding, and the only thing that affects scapula positioning is muscle, so that means your upper body is out of shape. We could inject something to make the pain go away temporarily, but there is nothing surgical to do, and the only real solution is to exercise. Lift weights, do rowing exercises, etc." I believed him. It made some sense to me that my upper body might be less strong recently, especially after breaking my knee and being less athletic for more than a year. So I bought resistance bands, a pull-up bar, etc and did rowing exercises, push-ups, pull-ups, Tony Horton videos, yoga, etc. Eventually I was probably in the best upper-body shape I'd ever been in, and my scapula still protruded, and it was still painful, and my doctor still told me to exercise more. So he must be wrong. TMS fits my personality, and I accept the diagnosis. I don't know why the pain hasn't gone away yet, so I want to do this whole program to really really accept and commit to the diagnosis just in case I unconsciously haven't accepted it or something. I can't think of any other explanation.
