They did stem cell therapy on my knee. They micro-fracture the head of the bone that goes into the joint by drilling small holes into it. It allows the stem cells to leak from the holes and if everything works, grows and recreates a barrier on the joint.Never considered that might be a possibility. How would you go about getting stem cells?
tore mine 4 years ago. Doctors couldn't do surgery because it was torn too much and couldn't stretch the ligaments far enough to stich back together. I was 65 when I did it. had to go through PT. It was a *****, hurt like you wouldn't believe. Still don't have much motion in my right arm. GET THE SURGERY.Tore mine a little over two weeks ago. The first week was excruciatingly painful. The pain is a little better now, but still very limited range of motion.
Anybody here been through this? Did you opt for surgery or PT, and how long before you regained complete pain free range of motion?
Mine healed on its own. I still get twinges, but I have a full range of motion.Both mine are torn, I just suck it up, live with a little pain. Secret the surgeons do not want to tell is sometimes over time they self heal. PT is the way to go, surgury is NO GUARANTEE of nothing but the doctor doing the procedure paying for his or her high dollar car.

This is in my future. I wear glasses which helps with UV, but I live in Arizona. My eyesight sucks,Sometimes they heal, but it's like have Cataracks, if you go to the grave with em you have cheated some eye surgon out of fees.
I have minor Cataracks, do not interfear with me seeing. I know what I have, I do not know what I will have if some great person with M.D., following their name screws up on me.
Being blind is no big deal unless it is me being blind. Hope you get my point.
incline pressesI'm curious.
How did you folks tear your rotator cuff?
I used to work next to a golf course and would spend lunch time on the links. I always stretched. Thinking back I never saw anyone stretch, just go out there and whack the ball. I think that would cause problems. .incline presses
repetitive motion over head that tests the limit of rang of motion (golf or tennis for example)
I've tweaked my rotator cuff muscles more times than I can count. it hurts for a few days, or weeks, then get's sort of back to normal, then something tweaks it again.
I train my posterior delt and back to mitigate this...until it happens again. No more barbell benches, only dumbbells for flat and incline training, and always slow at the bottom of the reps to avoid a momentum tear.
And no. No more heavy overhead presses.
