Can one work around shoulder tendonitis in the gym?

Yes: Shoulder tendinitis is a very common problem and can be treated with ice, nsaid's and activity modification. As far as exercising at the gym is concerned, try to avoid overhead lifting. Military/shoulder press and push-ups should be avoided. Add internal/external rotation exercises to your routine and always ice after exercise. After 4-6 weeks you should feel better, if not see an orthopod. ...Read more

I have rotator cuff injury and inflammation on both the shoulders. Will tommy johns surgery work in my case?

I have rotator cuff injury and inflammation on both the shoulders. Will tommy johns surgery work in my case?

Not for shoulders!: Tommy john surgery is for elbow instability. Tendon is used to reconstruct the ulnar collateral ligament on the inside part of the elbow. For rotator cuff injuries and tendinitis, a combination of oral/injectable steroids, nsaid's and therapy, is very effective treatment. If non-operative treatment fails, shoulder arthroscopy is the treatment of choice. See a board certified orthopaedic surgeon. ...Read more

Can i walk around with a torn hamstring also was cartridge in my joint in a torn ligament all in the same right knee?

Depends: I did not appreciate the full nature of your condition, you should certainly be checked. People with hamstring injuries can heal without surgery and many times patients can walk through the process. The ligament and cartilage nature of the injury described depends on the actual structures involved and the associated displacement, stability, etc. Thank you for your question. ...Read more

Can I go to the gym and workout for my shoulder joint dislocation?

Can I go to the gym and workout for my shoulder joint dislocation?

Yes: Yes you can but you have to be careful. Its important to get more muscular strength in the rotator cuff and stabilizing muscles of the shoulder to prevent further injury. But its not always successful and sometimes surgery is needed. I would avoid having your arm out against your body as thats a dangerous position if you are prone to dislocate. I would get help from a physical therapist. ...Read more

Can I go to the gym and workout after my shoulder joint dislocation?

Maybe: Depending on what you want to do you might be able to do some exercises. But what you can do depends upon how long ago your shoulder was dislocated. I would assume you are getting physical therapy. Your doctor is the one who should tell when you can return to activities and to what activities you can return. ...Read more

My cartilage of rt knee started to degenerate posterior meniscus, may be due to over jogging or running on steps to top of my building daily.Wat to do?

My cartilage of rt knee started to degenerate posterior meniscus, may be due to over jogging or running on steps to top of my building daily.Wat to do?

Complicated: The meniscus helps the cartilage and vice versa. It all depends on how much cartilage damage there is and how much meniscus is left. You must realize that once cartilage damage begins, high impact activities can cause continued pain and may not be the best idea. Talk with an orthopedic surgeon. You can still be active but you may have to modify some of your training. ...Read more

Could i get surgery on my shoulder at the AC joint as the top joining bone is rasied up and causes abit of pain while in use?

How Long?: If you haven't had this pain very long and haven't suffered any significant injury, it may be a strain of your ac joint (where the collarbone meets the shoulder blade). Often avoiding activities that cause the pain for a while will result in improvement. If you have had pain and trouble for some time, i would recommend you see a shoulder specialist. ...Read more

Pain in the buttocks from my job. Remedy to sitting at work all day?

Pain in the buttocks from my job. Remedy to sitting at work all day?

A Pain in the Butt: The simple answer is to get up and move around if possible. Sitting all day on improper seats can irritate the sciatic nerve as well as the coccyx or tail bone. Coccydynia is a painful condition of the tail bone and the bursa that may respond to injection therapy. Sciatica requires relief from compression. Keep a wallet in the front pocket. Vascular claudication is a also likely possibility. ...Read more

Shoulder tendonitis. How to tell if there's nerve compression at the shoulder/ rotator cuff? No restriction in movement. Just pain when swim/ cut meat

Shoulder tendonitis. How to tell if there's nerve compression at the shoulder/ rotator cuff? No restriction in movement. Just pain when swim/ cut meat

Shoulder: Tendinitis is more likely. Nerves usually do not get trapped in the shoulder area unless there is extensive surgical intervention and a lot of scarring. You should rest it for about 4 weeks and then go for physical therapy. Exercising an inflamed tendon prevents it from healing and causes pain as well. ...Read more
