Distal Anterior Supraspinatus Tendon Tear
Can a mild articular sided fray of the anterior supraspinatus tendon with no full-thickness or large partial thickness tendon tear heal w/o surgery?
Can supraspinatus intrasubstance tendon tear (7x1x6 mm) heal by itself without surgery? How long may it take for a healthy 62 years old to heal?
Unlikely: Partial thickness rotator cuff tears rarely'heal'. They may become less painful occassionally in some patients who are able to 'tolerate' them. However, most progress (esp. In older adults) w/time to small full thickness tears, etc. If u are not improving w/ pt, NSAIDs, etc. Consider having an experienced arthroscopist perform repair (intrasubstance or 'taken down' and repair to bone).Pain relief! ...Read more

Have a complete tear of left flexor hallucis longus tendon. Tear is in front of knot of henry. Is surgery best or is something less invasive possible?
Experience counts.: It goes without saying that every patient's condition should be evaluated before applying general rules, but, if the laceration is distal (toward the toes) to the knot of Henry, then surgical repair is probably best. Find an experienced surgeon. ...Read more

What is the best prescription for hi grade partial undersurface tear of distal supraspinatus tendon?
Arthroscopic eval: A high-grade tear of the rotator cuff acts like a full-thickness tear, although there are still some intact fibers. Injections and therapy may provide temporary relief of pain at night and with activities. The most effective may to achieve long-term pain relief and improved function is with shoulder arthroscopy. See a board certified orthopaedic surgeon for evaluation and treatment. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Varying degrees: Think of the severities you listed as a continuum. - if you have bicep soreness following any increase in your normal level of activitiy, then you likely strained the muscle fibers. The pain associated will likely subside w/ a proper amount of conservative treatment (rice). If no improvement see a physician. A strain itself can be of varing degrees & in the most severe cases a "tear" may result. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
See a doctor: Seeing a podiatrist or orthopedic surgeon would be a start. A proper examination, with possibly other studies such as ultrasound or MRI can make the diagnosis and start you on appropriate treatment.

If Achilles is torn: It is very difficult, or impossible to lift your body up on the affected side while standing on that foot only. To clarify: while holding on to the arm of a chair pick your good leg off the ground. Try to do a toe raise on the bad leg. This is usually not possible with a torn achilles. ...Read moreSee 6 more doctor answers
