I asked for medical advice about my arm/shoulder awhile ago. I finally got insurance company approval for an MRI, (closed, disconcerting, loud, no idea of the strength of the magnet) it clearly showed severe inflammation and a partial tear. I was immediately started on a PT program 3x a week of stretching and strengthening.

Wow! What am improvement! While I still have some pain and impairment, I am much improved. It's been four weeks, I go to the doctor next week. He may suggest a cortisone shot, or just continued PT. I don't know how much improvement I'll have, whether it will ever be 100%, but I'm amazed at how specific exercises have eliminated my pain.

PT is amazing.

I'm also almost completely pain free after dislocating mine in October.

I'm amazed. I've had PT before, but not with these results. I have chronic back pain, maybe CFS, who knows. I stretch regularly, it helps, but this is actually a potential CURE.

It's so nice to be able to pull the covers up by myself at night!

This is a self diagnosis but believe I have torn my rotator cuff at Least partially. I would love to know what you are doing because there are nights when it hurst so bad I can't sleep. I just haven't take. The jump to seeing someone because well I'm a horrible patient and would not have surgery until I had no use of my arm.
Your story gives me hope that I wouldn't have to have surgery

Hey, TN, my experience was similar. Horrible pain, shooting up my arm, my neck, my jaw. My mobility was so limited at times I cried getting a shirt off. Mine I'd a partial tear, the doc says definitely not a surgical option, MAYBE cortisone, but the PT is really making a huge difference. I can't take the naprosyn as prescribed, 2x a day, bothers by stomach, but it, too helps when the pain is nagging.

I'm really confident I'll see more improvement with continued therapy.

TN, I'm surprised at you.

I agree on PT - it's done wonders for me, too. It's good to hear a positive experience.

I may just ask the doc for a script for PT ... except that I, too, would like to know what the problem is. I never believed curiosity killed the cat....
