I saw a new chiropractor/ physical therapist today and he was great. He ruled out arthritis and carpal tunnell and thinks that my issues are related to neck and shoulder areas probably from my years of traditional animation.
He uses an activator instrument rather than just manual manipulation. he was very thorough. I'll be seeing him again next week.
I will let you know how it goes.
I was relieved that he didn't think it was arthritis...a personal fear of mine. Also....even my parents barely have arthritis yet....so early onset is not too likely.
I have lots of confidence in my new doctor!
