Re: tendon tear in shoulder, what to do?

Hi. It´s exactly like this. Maybe you´ve had also low backpain like me for x years after work. The tear is terribly painful because the vascular sack of the shoulder joint starts producing more fluid cause it senses something is wrong which presses onto nerves. OUCH!
You will have an operation and lots of exercising starting after 8 weeks. Make sure you follow exactly the advice of your PT. Buy a massagebench it is necessary for exercising the first years. The healing will go slowly and exercising is a must for healing. The good news is that it´ll heal. You are lucky my PT told me because it shows bloodflow has been really bad and you can go working on it now. So keep up the mood and make exercising part of your lifestyle. Hug! Andrés Hugo
