MRI says recurrent tear of surgically repaired posterior supra and infra tendons w/23mm of medial retraction& 23mm anterior to posterior gap.This bad?

Ask Orthopedic Surgn: The MRI just gives an anatomical report, it tells you nothing about how it moves. Your question is better posed relating to "function" (i.e., "can you still use the shoulder, & for how long?"). This question is best asked of the doctor who ordered the MRI (& should have a copy of the report). If you get no answer, take your MRI picture + report to an Orthopedic Surgeon.

What is mild lateral excursion to the patella with focal subchrondral bone marrow along the median ridge inferior patella? overlying chondromalacia

Weak VMO-LrgQ angle: The VMO ->the medial part of quadriceps muscle, when relatively stronger, it can help your patella (knee cap) track in the middle of its groove. As you grow, hips get wider and that increases the Q angle (look it up). Strengthen your VMO with Quad Sets. Put a Coffee can under your knee straighten- hold. Toes in X20, toes strait X10, Toes out X10. VMO works w/ toes in. incr. to 100/50/50. Ice. ...Read more
