    Supraspinatus Tendinosis with partial tear.

    My right shoulder started hurting bad with no injury in December. I had bankart surgery on my left shoulder in April and as of November that started hurting again.. So docs said its due to overuse of my right arm and to rest for a month. I did that, no help. Went back again, he said rest another month. Okay another month, now its Feb. and i still can't write (which is a pretty big part of my job).

    I started taking all different supplements, went on a diet, I tried mayofacial therapy. Im going on a month of P.T with little results including working mainly with the theraband, shoulder bike & low weights for rotator cuff workouts.

    Herd HGH helps, herd platelet rich plasma helps, herd eccentric workouts help (basically doing those already). One doctor recommended i do physical therapy through the pain.. which i can do, I'm just paranoid its going to make it worse. Ive had injuries since I'm 18 & its really starting to **** with me. Anybody going through this with me i ****ing feel for you ANY ADVICE HELPS.

    Are you doing flat barbell bench press and heavy bicep curls?

    Those two exercises will keep an aggravated shoulder aggravated forever.

    Just trying to figure things out, is the tear is on the left shoulder? If it was on the left, was this addressed with the surgery? Yeah, rotator cuff related issues sometimes refer pain to the front of the shoulder, but then again, the long head of the biceps tendon can possibly be involved as well.

    I have a 70% tear of my supraspinatus (MRI was many years ago, it's likely increased), have to work around it, sometimes its more symptomatic, sometimes less.

    Personally, I have never been able to return to flat, free-weight bench or free-weight shoulder press, nor can I handle dumbbell curls in which my arm is not supported.

    I had a labrum tear in the left shoulder after a few dislocations from boxing, they repaired it in April2015 the most recent MRI said it may have torn again and I'm thinking it did because i still can't do a pushup... man i feel for you i haven't been at the gym like that since i was 18.. & i work as a stockbroker which you would think is the best case job for an injury like this but i can't even write without my arm not killing me. Most of these doctors really have no clue what there talking about, thats why I'm taking matters into my own hands. Did you ever try P.T? If so how'd it work for you?

    Labral tears suck, sorry if you're looking at another surgery - I'm putting off my shoulder surgery until the symptoms really warrant it.

    I'm actually a P.T. (kind of semi-retired, now I teach), so I'm confident with my exercise selection.

    You are right about some/many doctors, but that's why you have to find a specialist (same with P.T.'s) who work with and are good with shoulders.

    Right now at 57, I am doing better than I have been in many years, feeling fortunate.
