Q. How do I gain range of motion after shoulder surgery

I'm 31 years old and had a shoulder replacment last year. I still don't know why my joint gave out and 4 Orthopedic Surgeons couldn't tell me either. I have limited Range of Motion and the Dr. seems to think that because of my "age" I was less likley to get full range back. I refuse to believe that, does anyone have any suggestions on how to gain ROM back?
Ai guess you go to physiotherapy no?
that is their job. to give you range of motion after injuries, surgeries ect. they'll give you exercises specially for your condition. when i had an accident i broke my leg hip and i needed 2 months of physiotherapy that helped very much.

Q. why when we drink alcohol everything seems funnier and things moves as in slow motion? how does it effect the

brain and the nerve system ?
A1Donot drink an drive,Like i have said before it is your body trying to get your attention(its telling you that it cant work right with alcohol in it.drinking may seem fun now but it can turn into a nightmare,an you can loose your life,or it can become a living hell for you and the people close to you--THINK BEFORE YOU DRINK---mrfoot56
A2alcohol can pass through the blood-brain-barrier enter it and depress it. the first thing it's effecting is the coordination. (this is why you should avoid drinking and driving)then it passes on and on the way it affects the vision perception.
