Re: Torn Rotator Cuff

When I saw the Orthopedic doctor on April 17th then he rushed me to surgery on May 3rd for wrist hand, torn rotor cuff and two bone spurs, without discuss with my husband and me about surgery before. The doctor surgery on me then after I saw him again on May 16th then will not send me to PT or anything and said have to wait 4 more weeks. I have not had any PT after surgery May 3rd! I have tried to exercise by myself and painful so badly and also I have had back hurt from job and won't move body itself like crack then I have to go to Chirpoter to crack back, neck and shoulder/hand. Yes I am angry at my doctor that I asked my husband, did he tell us before surgery? He said no, he did not tell us nothing. I feel that I am trap and fighting with my shoulder back to normal! How can I response???

Silicone inserts leave the epicondyle pressure-free and provide an intermittent compression to the soft tissue of the joint, leading to increased circulation, thus aiding in the resorption of swelling and edema.
