Can a rotator cuff injury cause tingling in my arm and wrist?

Can a rotator cuff injury cause tingling in my arm and wrist?

Could be from neck: I see many patients with rotator cuff tears that also have numbness, tingling, and even weakness below the shoulder into the arm, forearm, and wrist/hand. The neurological symptoms below the shoulder notoriously arise from an ongoing neck problem such as a pinched nerve within the cervical spine. ...Read more

What can cause arm to feel like I hit funny bone but haven't, occurred often after i have rotator cuff injury and strain?

I was told by chiropractor that i had a strained rotator cuff. Well I have tingling in my 4-arm wrist and hand. And my right foot too is that normal?

I was told by chiropractor that i had a strained rotator cuff.  Well I have tingling in my 4-arm wrist and hand. And my right foot too is that normal?

These symptoms: May have no relationship to one another. A strained rotator cuff and forearm paresthesias (tingling) warrant at least a cursory talk with an advice nurse; an evaluation of right foot tingling deserves a course of conservative treatment...Stretching, heat...Before proceeding further. I certainly agree with another doc on our network who just suggested an eval for possible neck nerve root entrapment. ...Read more

I have a rotator cuff injury and drop arm test shows supraspinatus tear. Do i need to have surgery?

Depends: http://www.theshouldercenter.com/rotator-cuff-tear.htm an acute injury can result in significant weakness but not mean that there is a large tear. We need more information and a clearer extent of pathology and diagnosis. A drop arm test by itself is not sufficient to make the decision for surgery. Consider a more detailed evaluation with a shoulder specialist to review your options. ...Read more

Will I have to keep my arms elevated after my brachioplasty? I have an old rotator cuff injury that makes raising one of my arms painful after awhile. Will I have to keep my arms elevated after a brachioplasty?

.

After : After brachioplasty, the most important thing you can do to reduce arm swelling is to wear your compression sleeves as instructed by your physician. You do not need to keep your arms elevated after surgery. You may hold your arms in whatever position is most comfortable for you. All the best, dr. Skourtis. ...Read more
