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?

Nerve pain: May be related to cervical radiculopathy (pinched nerve in neck), brachial plexopathy, ulnar neuropathy, or median neuropathy, amongst other causes. A visit with a neurologist or physiatrist who may perform an electrodiagnostic evaluation (EMG/NCS) may help establish a definitive diagnosis. ...Read more

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?

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
