A friend of mine suffered serious injuries to her shoulder and knee in a fall. Facing yet more surgery but not wanting to do so, she asked me if I could find information online, but I ended up wading through a lot of stuff that was either non-specific to her injuries or just plain useless.
Therefore I’m hoping one of you can fill me in on…
[li]rotator cuff injuries and how long they usually take to heal and what’s good for helping to rehabilitate them[/li][li]ways to work on stretching and bending a surgically repaired knee (including a messed-up patella) that has become quite stiff[/li][/ol]
My friend feels that her doctor is too insistent on further surgery to cut the muscles or something to that effect to help with the bending, and she really doesn’t want to take him up on that offer. An avid runner, she would like to run again but doesn’t want to endure more pain and costs if it’s not completely necessary.
Let me know if more information is needed. Thanks.
