My left shoulder has had pain it sometimes shoots down into the arm. The tendons around the joint are tender. Its like aching pain bu not always there?
Rotator cuff: Depending on your age could be chronic tendinosis or even a rotator cuff tear. Rotator cuff pain often radiates down side of arm. In patients under forty to fifty this is often the result of tendinopathy or mild degeneration and will usually respond to nonoperative measures. Older patients often have a rotator cuff tear which depending on severity is sometimes best managed with surgery. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I have bicep tendon instability, icing and stem treatments do not help. What should I do? I am a college football player and have had two surgeries on my left shoulder to repair my labrum. Now II suffer from chronic pain in the front of my shoulder and co
A : A young athlete such as you can have a complex problem with the shoulder and is more likely to have recurrent shoulder joint instability than older patients. While long head of the biceps tendinitis and subluxation can be painful and causing your symptoms, this should be determined by a good shoulder specialist. He/she should have a sports fellowship focusing on shoulder injuries. If the labral tear has healed well and there is no residual shoulder instability, the biceps tendon can be treated a few ways. Injections can be quite helpful by reducing pain and inflammation. Some surgeons will do a tenotomy (cut the tendon) and let it self-determine a new length as it scars. Other surgeons will do a tenodesis and anchor the tendon in a specific location. Most importantly, though, is assuring a stable joint as a loose shoulder can cause problems now and in the future. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Yes: Not all labral injuries are the same. Acute or recent injuries protected appropriately from reinjury have a better chance to heal than chronic or older injuries. Most are treated with an initial course of rest then physical therapy. Only the persistent, symptomatic labral tears may warrant surgical intervention eventually. The final decision is best made between you and your surgeon. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
I have had a torn labrum and rotator cuff in my left shoulder for over a year now, will it heal on its own? My dr refuses to give me a referral
It will not heal: A labral tear and a rotator cuff tear will not heal on their own. Sometimes, though, even though something (like an mri) says there is a tear, it may not be the full source of the pain. I would recommend an evaluation by an orthopedic surgeon. If you cannot get a referral call some offices and see what an evaluation would cost. You may want to do it that way. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
