We just don't know: There are no well controlled double blinded crossover studies in humans to prove that collagen supplements work any better than placebo. Knox gelatin powder may work as well for shoulder injury as any supplement being sold online or at your corner health food store. Most hydrolyzed collagen comes from cattle, pig, fish, and hoses byproducts, so watch for food allergies. Vegans beware! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Mri results show a tear in the tendon on my sister's shoulder. Will be going under surgery. How long will the healing take?
How long is the recovery time after an operation on a shoulder. I have an exstensive slap tare to the upper librum?
Expect 3 mo therapy: I usually recommend up to 3 months of physical therapy (2 visits per week) after most repairs of slap tears of the labrum. This allows for adequate time for protecting the healing, repaired labrum. If the slap tear is only debrided (torn portion trimmed away akin to a hang nail), the recovery is much quicker and most patients can advance with minimal therapy "as tolerated". ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

A second/third opinion is definitely recommended in such cases. Talk/visit with your primary care physician now, nonetheless, and make sure your feelings of depression are discussed and addressed. ...Read more
What to do for a subluxing shoulder? I've had this for a long time, periodically pops out. Worth the surgery? Hasn't popped out in a couple years.
Possiblly repair: Need for surgery depends on severity- shoulders that frequently dislocate are at risk for greater injury, and are probably not meeting all that is demanded of them. However, if a patient is free of pain and can do all desired activities without dislocation, surgical repair may not be necessary. With recurrent, infrequent dislocation, elective repair would be reasonable. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Depends on the surg: There are a very large number of different shoulder surgeries so recovery time absolutely cannot be determined as a single time for all shoulder surgery. For many ligament and tendon repairs around the shoulder, most patients are able to return to their work and recreational activities by 6 months. Your surgeon can best tell you the expected recovery time for any procedures that they recommend. ...Read more
