  • Supraspinatus Rehab.

    I'm looking at arthroscopic surgery to see if and how my supraspinatus tendons (yes both sides ) can be repaired.
    As i am a very active individual struggling to come to terms with my sudden lack of use of my arms, i would like to hear of peoples (both treating and treated) experiences in rehabilitating after a supraspinatus injury.

    If you are young and really have full thickness supraspinatus tears and you want to use your arms above shoulder height, then surgery is a good idea.

    Cortisone is only good for very small tears and/or for older people with larger tears who don't want to play tennis anymore or lift stuff.

    Make sure you see a shoulder specialist, and you should do OK.

      I have been seeing respected sports specialists and have an appointment with a surgeon who is meant to be the bees knees at shoulders.
      When you say i should do OK, what do you mean? My Doctor has been all doom and gloom, however this may have been a tactic of his to 'scare' me into behaving and not using my shoulders.

      Thank you for the intial reply.
