Increased tracer uptake in the cervical spine/ body scan. Neck pain associated w/ torn labrum. COPD diagnosis as well. Is this worth a second look?

Increased tracer uptake in the cervical spine/ body scan.  Neck pain associated w/ torn labrum.  COPD diagnosis as well. Is this worth a second look?

Unclear story: Increased tracer uptake may or may not be pathological- arthritic joints in the neck will commonly have increased uptake. If it is in the vertebral bone itself, that is unusual and would need a "second look". A "torn labrum" would suggest shoulder pathology, not the neck- you may simply have your terms confused. Obviously, you had a test done for a reason so need to f/u with the ordering doc. ...Read more

Over the initial 2-3 months you would progress from passive to active assisted and then active motion. Once full active motion and reasonable strength is regained, a progressive throwing program would be allowed. ...Read more

A total hip will restore your motion, strength, and function better than anything else. You do need to know options regarding implant type and bearing surfaces before hand and pick a surgeon skilled in total hip arthroplasty. ...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

Which test/exam can determine if my shoulder is fully recovered? (torn labrum, 6 month ago)

Need more info: If you did not have surgery then the labrum is still torn. This does not necessarily mean that you have to have surgery. Labral tears vary in size, location and associated symptoms. Often degenerative tears are treated conservatively, without surgery, and patients do quite well. Your orthopedist/ sports medicine physician can help you make this assessment. If you had surgery your doc will tell you. ...Read more
