riley16 daysJust a supraspinatus partial tear from awkward hard climbing, I should've known better. Rotator cuff exercises would help.details

mlakelly21 daysPhysical Therapy twice a week for 3 weeks. Cortisone pills for the bursitis. Kayaking in the Desert Winds race certainly caused it to flair up.

Bigmac74 daysI stoped PT and it feels much better and I have full range of motion back. It still herts some in the AM if I slept on it. Looking back I think to much racquetball and a couple of bad MTB crashes didn't help. Not to mention being almost 43.details

Charlie207 daysI'm putting this down as recovered. It still hurts, and I have to be careful, but I don't think it is likely to get fully better and I'm tired of looking at it on my logdetails

Charlie354 daysHard to call it a recovery, but I guess it is as good as it's going to get. Maybe at some time pursue a second opinion.details

kyntha403 daysI had surgery 3 months ago. I was surprised at how much pain and limited range of motion I experienced after. But now I feel so much better. I have an occasional stiffness or twang of stiff muscle going down the arm. But my rom is much improved. I did PT for 3 months and mostly just used my left arm for the first 2 months.
