open topic, for anything cycling related.
OK, let's change that right now. THe single worst thing you can do is use immobility to manage pain. YOu MUST move. The sooner you regain full ROM the better. I smashed my neck badly a decade ago, and after x-rays, went straight back to work, as I had just opened my own business.
I also biffed a shoulder a few years ago ski-ing, and just kept going. It killed me to move it, but I forced a normal ROM from day one, and had a quick recover as a result.
Use pain relief to enable movement. Movement is life !!

Sorry to those that sent me a PM without a reply...
Thought I would post an update... Thanks kindly to everyones best wishes and to Carolyn for her recommendation of physio (Booked in for next week). Finally healed enough to start going to physio and to do some sort of exercise (i.e. walking). I went from a healthy 67kg to 59kg, which is mainly muscle.. (Amazing how quick muscle disappears with inactivity over a short duration), so I'm eager to start exercising properly in due time.
As far as cycling is concerned I sold all my bikes except one Roadie which will be my main bike. Was a little compulsive with my bike collection as many of you know. So I will keep cycling everyday especially that I'm in a better area that doesn't have as crazy drivers as Joondalup.
