    Ligaments/Rotator Cup

    So it looks like I'll be out for the next little while after trying to catch the end of a 300lb roll of tarp at work. :5bomb:

    My left shoulder has about 75% of it's mobility back after three days off of work/training, but I fear that that is just the initial swelling dying down from the Ibuprofen I've been throwing back like candy.

    Aside from keeping my diet full of protein and the joint/antiflammatory medication, anyone have any ideas to speed this up? Or some cues to look for to know when my shoulder will be gravy again? I'm worried about going back too soon and blowing the joint out completely.

    Working construction and training in Pankration hasn't been aiding my recovery time.

    Only thing i can recommend is get checked out by a doc if you haven't already. Rotator cup is nothing to **** around with.

    Good luck.

    It's called the rotator cuff!

    You have a tear? What did your doctor say?

    No, I doubt it's a tear. I've tore knee ligaments before and the mobility/pain/recovery factors were all much more severe.

    I think it's just a strain. MOderate to heavy. But not a tear.

    oh man, you're fucked.

    i'm not even being funny, since i have been recovering from a nasty rotator cuff tear for over 8 months now (it's mostly better now.)

    see your doctor, get regular massage, and do physical therapy (lots of massage and excercises.)

    surgery may not help much, if your doc suggests it, get a few opionions and do some homework, a lot of people think the surgery isn't very helpful.

    My mom tore her rotator cuff and lifting her arm makes her pinch the nerves or something sometimes, so she can't even lift anything. It's been like this for a few years, doc (3 different ones) said nothing can be done but surgey. However, the surgery has a good chance of cutting off her nerves totally and her losing mobility in her arm entirely. :(

    You don't even know that it is the rotator cuff.

    The shoulder joint is the most complex joint in the body. There could be many different explanations for what you're experiencing besides the rotator cuff.

    I suspect it probably is the cuff, but until you get an actual diagnosis, there is no way to know how to treat it.

    I tore my rotator cuff whe ni was younger and then again jsut recently. Surgury ishould be you last possible option when you absoutly can't stand it anymore. This last time in my doctor asked how bad it hurt on a scale from It bothers me a little to PLEASE GOD CUT MY ARM OFF. When i ansewered somewhere in the middle she told me that untill it gets to oh god... to just do the excersizes and take the meds she gave me and not train for a while. According to her if i had rotator surgury now it would put me in worse pain then the accutaly injust for the next 3 -4 months...

    Rehabilitate the muscles associated with the area of the Rotator, Latissimus, etc. If you can get something to speed up the process, that will definitely help. Ask your doctor about that. If you're old enough to where you have a definite dip in your T levels, he might be able to help you out. Also, for any tissue regen, it's not just protein, it's caloric intake also. Another thing, be easy on the Anti-inflammatories, they have been shown to slow the healing process. N02 will also help in mild ways to aid in healing as it'll help recovery time.

    That isn't always good advice though. It's very fact specific and depends on the reasons for the tear.

    The majority of rotator cuff tears are due to a type II or III acromion bone. This is true even when the tear can be traced back to a particular trauma. The trauma is usually just the straw that broke the camel's back. Typically, it's been tearing very gradually over time. In this situation, if it's left alone, the cuff will continue to be torn down, until it eventually tears very badly, often times completely. This ultimate outcome can often be avoided by early detection and arthroscopic intervention.
