I had a full thickness supraspinatus tear in my (left) RC and have tried everything SHORT of surgery. My range of motion is (perhaps) 40% of normal. Cannot get to my back pocket, raise my arm (as one would in a classroom setting) or get my arm completely horizontal with the floor in a standing position…I'm in a constant state of light to medium pain (3-5 on a 1-10 scale) but often when I move the joint in a certain way…the pain can immediately go to an 8 or 9…I'm considering Prolotherapy or PRP …thoughts?

Hey Doctor Jo, thank you for your wonderful, funny and helpful videos. You bring a new meaning to the word doctor. Question: I have a painful right shoulder, only in specific positions and movements. My physiotherapist said look for videos for Rotator Cuff. I follow your work out with this video. I feel real pain only with the bear hug exc. Should I do more? Stop doing that specific exercise? or do it the same amount like all the others? Thanks, Mark

Larry Wheeler says:

Just had my complete tear re attached 5 weeks ago. Noticed atrophy in my bicep within 1 week. Range of motion not good . I'm still in sling until 6 weeks. I'm doing pendulum motions. I hope I get my shoulder back.

Hi Doctor Jo,

I injured my shoulder and my ultrasound result says about rotator cuff: There is a mild tendinopathy of the supraspinatus tendon with no evidence of a rotator cuff tear. My family doctor said the rest, ice and do not move for a week. I injured my arm 3 days ago. If my arm is not gonna better and she said she will direct me to the physical therapy. In this case I would like to ask you suggestion what should I do for now.Should I wait with no movement or do any exercise? Thanks in advance.

Marc Chaves says:

Roy P says:

I have dislocation problems in my left shoulder. I can't rotate in external rotation. If I try to do exercises it will dislocate every time. Can you please help me, I need my shoulder strength back, plzzz_zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz_zz help me

Michael McCormick says:

In light of your suggestion to use light weights, is it too much to use the equipment at the gym? My surgeon told me two months post-op not to use the elliptical machine, but that was 9 months ago. I still feel pain on occasion. I was surprised when he told me post-op that my recovery from two total tears (supra and infra spinatus) would be one year.

Therlow Pope Jr says:

Kathy & Brad Brasseur says:

Michaelyn Glover says:

Hi Dr. Jo. Love your videos. I had rotator cuff tear surgery in July I'm still having a tough time being able to raise up and out and behind my back I've been looking at a lot of your videos, I was going to pt now at 9wks and I feel the excerizes were not tough enough because really I don't feel much better at all. Going to do your excerizes with the resistive band and the where u were on the bed hanging with your arm up and out. I'm so ready to feel better and get back to work.


Thank you perfect.

Gregory H. Smith says:
