Rotator cuff on right arm is killing me, PT doesn't seem to be working either. I was really hoping to avoid surgery but it's looking it's more and more likely

. Good luck with that, get a good Doc

I really didn't want to do it either. I'm having some ups and downs. But only 2 weeks tomorrow and I'm almost back to normal. Just a little stiff, not sure if my quick recovery is normal, but I can already tell my “issue” has been fixed.

Doc, told me I had impingement syndrome and didn't think I had a tear, but the PT and exercises don't seem to be helping. My issues are with raising my arm straight up and “reaching” behind my back...I even have a hard time putting on a belt because of that.

 

Doc has done X-rays, but not MRI....guess that's the next step

Same thing I had. I was nervous at first. But like I said 2 weeks out and I feel like I could go play 18 if the doc cleared me.

 

Mine was anything out, up or a pulling down motion.

I played yesterday, golf swing doesn't seem to hurt that much, but I am stiffer and in more pain today.

 

I've been dealing with this since mid-December, I just woke up one morning with a dull ache in my right shoulder, I thought I had just slept on it wrong. I didn't injury it or anything so I just took ibuprofen and went on with things. It wasn't until about a week later that I decided I might need to check it out.

My swing didn't hurt. I messed mine up in August. Tried a few cortisone shots, some home PT.

 

Taking my damn shirt off is how I messed mine up. Quite aggravating.

 

But I initially sprained my rotator cuff. Couldn't move my arm much at all. It went back to “normal” but wasn't right since.

Anyone have ultrasound treatment on muscles? It worked wonders for about 5 hours. This knot in my deltoid will not go away!

Did it work? Multiple times? This thing is driving me nuts, and keeping me up all night.

I had a chiropractor use it on my back. Not much success but that was about 8 years ago so maybe the equipment has improved.

went to PR 2x week. It was part of the therapy mixed with exercises and machines. Sure felt good afterwards.

I've never felt anything quite like this. Very strange sensation that feels like it's right in the middle between the shoulder and elbow. Hope they can get it worked out.

Sure hope so. Golf season right around the corner! Seriously listen to what they (PT Techs) say. I believe they saved me from getting cut.

They are doing wonders that's for sure. They are amazed at how much I've progressed in 2 weeks. Lots of band workouts. Heck I don't even have the stitches out yet. Just a frustrating little ball of bound up muscle! Haha

Bands are awesome, picked some up at Walmart after PT.

Not an injury, but I'm sick of sinusitis. Been having reasonably constant minor issues with flare ups every 6 weeks or so.

 

Latest attempt to get rid of it is heavy duty antibiotics with a steroid chaser. Hopefully I can get it cleared up.

That was me 100%. Impingement with a bone spur and some labrum tearing. He did a procedure call subacromial decompression, which basically means he cut away part of the bone to allow free movement of the joint. I'm 9 weeks post op right now and still have some soreness and discomfort but back to full range of motion and cleared for golf. I think if the labrum would have been intact I would have had much quicker recovery.

Like you, PT, exercises and cortisone did not help at all because the bone spur was rubbing against rotator cuff tendons. Can't really stretch your way out of that.
