Surgery likely next: Having failed physical therapy, tendon tears about the shoulder (rotator cuff tendon tears) will likely benefit from a surgical repair. A thorough evaluation by your orthopaedic surgeon will help delineate whether surgery is the best option in your particular case. ...Read more

Splint: Perhaps the reason is your wrist pain. A cock up splint can help put a wrist to rest not only for carpal tunnel but for a variety of reasons, you also may have a slight bit of nerve irritation at the wrist even though the nerve study was negative. ...Read more

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 more

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 more

I have tendonisis in the shoulder I may need to take ciprofloxacin would this affect my tendonisis am I more at risk of tendon rupture?

Tendonitis is a risk: I can not say whether the cipro (ciprofloxacin) will make your tendnitis worse or not. You need to discuss this with your physician and see if there is an alternative to cipro (ciprofloxacin) ...Read more

I pulled my tendon in my shoulder. What is the best way to treat this?

Rotator Cuff: The rotator cuff tendon is a major stabilizer of the shoulder joint especially with lifting and overhead activity. Treatment is dependent upon how large the tear is and how much weakness and pain your are having. Initial treatment may consist of rest and range of motion exercises. Severe tears may need surgery. ...Read more

Can a torn labrum (left shoulder) heal itself?

Can a torn labrum (left shoulder) heal itself?

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 more

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

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 more
