i've been diagnosed with Tendinopathy Subscapularis. I've had this bad shoulder for about 3 years now, caused by my mate twisting my arm back too far. I was wondering about some effective treatment to relieve the pain and stiffness i experience everyday. So far the only thing that seems to help are glucozamine and condrioton tablets and i dont even have athritis! I've seen a physio who gave me a resistance band to exercise with but unfortunately it has been unsuccessful despite the pain it causes to work out with. Swimming only seems moderately helpful and only relieves the pain for the day i swim on. I also practice Tai chi but it doesn't seem to relieve the pain and stiffness either. Have you guys got any advice that might help?
Tendinopatia subscapularis is an imprecise diagnosis. Tendinopathy subscapularis indicates only that there is something wrong with the tendons but the diagnosis doesnât tell us anything about the nature of that tendonâs disorder. Since you havenât had a precise diagnosis for over 3 years, you might visit an orthopaedist for an examination. After the doctor helps you to establish a precise diagnosis, then you can start investigating possible therapies and treatment for your shoulder.
