Wrist pain after injury. Mr arthrogram normal. Patient has pain, especially at nights, with dosiflexion, feels pops. Arthroscopy?
My shoulder randomly makes "grinding" noises following surgery for a torn rotator cuff and frozen shoulder (6 months ago). Should i be concerned?
Shoulder issue: Grinding noise is a non-specific symptom and may not be anything to worry about, but it may be part of a bigger picture that may need attention. It all depends on your recovery. If your pain is improving and function is slowly getting better, then you may need to watch it and consult your doc if other symptoms are present or recovery halts. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Just had MRI elbow, have partial tear LCL and ulnar subluxation. Surgery or therapy? Lots of snapping/pain.
Depends.: On what your orthopedist recommends as he/she has examined you and has more insight into your injury. I would guess physical therapy is going to be first line option with surgery reserved if PT and rehabilatation is not successful. Your orthopedist may specialize in just the elbow/shoulder and have vast experience. Ask him/her about similar patient outcomes. Trust in your orthopedist. ...Read more
Rib resection needed: See Thorasic surgeon for evaluationGet a more detailed answer ›
Yes, but only if...: If you have significant grade 4 chondromalacia('bone on bone') on the same side of the knee joint that has the radial tear than arthroscopy may not be helpful unless you have 'locking', or increased pain since tearing the meniscus.This is a controversial issue in orthopedics currently.A recent study showed no benefit for'degenerative' meniscus tear debridement in arthritic knees... Good Luck! ...Read more

Reduced rom in right shoulder with clicking sound when elevated. Rotator cuff injury? What is best treatment plan?
MRI in '14 showed supraspinatus tendinitis. Arthrogram now shows same and small labral tear. No overhead activities due to inability to raise arm. Had subacromial decompression in '09. What may be causing ongoing tendinitis? Surgery for labrum tear?
Possible cuff tear: You would need to see orthopedic surgeon for an examination. There are certain exam tests which are + when a labral tear is causing symptoms. You may have also had progression of your supraspinatus or rotator cuff tendinitis to a partial or full-thickness rotator cuff tear. Nonoperative treatment can include anti-inflammatories and subacromial cortisone injections. Physical therapy is helpful. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Will labra tear on shoulder that is detached heal with phyiscal thearpy? 6 weeks of PT with slight improvement. Surgery suggested.
Had shoulder surgery (SAD, ACR, LOA) 6/23 go to PT 2x/wk still stiff with limited ROM when do I consider MUA?
Too early: Sounds as though U may have component of adhesive capsulitis, and well MUA may be necessary if all else fails, I have had a lot of success in my own practice with intra-articular injections to include some form of cortisone. This seems to facilitate PT and help pts restore their motion, however I would probably wait another 4 wks before considering that. ...Read more

3 weeks post op shoulder surgery repair torn labrum & torn rotator cuff. Physical therapy started. Is popping and clicking normal after surgery?
Yes, don't worry.: Not all popping and clicking is a sign of trouble. In fact, because of the swelling that occurs after most shoulder surgeries, it is common. Remember to ice, do gentle range of motion exercises and begin early strengthening as directed by you surgeon and carried out by your physical therapist. In time, the noises will resolve as you recover. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Severe pain from shoulder down deltoid into bicep. Not rotator cuff. More pain when arm is rotated toward chest. Torn cartilage in other shoulder. ??
Get examined!: At age 55 your most common cause for this pain would still be 'impingement' ( or bursitis). Labral tears causing this pain are less likely unless associated with the biceps 'anchor'( SLAP) lesions -- but less likely in isolation in your age group.Osteoarthritis can cause pain in this distribution . AC joint arthritis can also cause pain when rotating arm towards chest ( adduction). See an ORS! GL! ...Read more
Had anterior labral focal depression of shoulder bone &got repaired through binocular surgery,now when I do shoulder exercise spring like sound comes?
Focal scarring: I believe the labrum probably has some scar tissue associated with the original injury, and there is bound to be some scarring from the surgery itself. If there is no pain or limitation of range of motion, the noise should not be a concern, only a side effect of injury and surgery. If there is pain or a limitation to your use of the shoulder, see an ortho and get an MRI to investigate ...Read more
Mri suggested wrist dorsal capsular sprain and 1-2 mm tfcc tear pain with weight, been 2 months hear clicking in wrist if bent too much how to treat?
Splint: Wrist sprains and strains can take a long time to heal. It is not unusual to have some discomfort for 6-9 months or more. I would suggest an elastic wrist support and avoid painful activities. A ridged wrist splint can be used occasionally. As long as you have some sense that the wrist is getting better, i would continue with conservative treatment. If it gets worse, see your doctor. ...Read more
