I'll have to look those up and add them to my routine.

52 years old tore my rotatar cuff about 8 years ago had surgery , does not bother to play back hand but thumers and thomahawks hurt like crazy , you will have to go easy on those , My doctor said 80% of rotator cuff can be cured with p.t so please give that a try before you let them cut you, I have had pt in other shoulder and seems to be fine now Get a second opinion if he wants to do surgery right away. good luck it is a long process

Thanks. Boy its amazing how many people have shoulder problems. Really don't want surgery man. Been hearing both sides. Some say get surgery. No if's, ands or buts. Others say dont let em cut you. I will definitely get a 2nd opinion.

I am so sorry to hear it. I have about a quarter tear in mine which limits my backhand max D but have learned to work around it. Don't rush back only to re injure yourself. Do the rehab, get some resistance bands!

Good luck on the road back.

I had rotator cuff surgery in February 2013. It was a large tear and it was scarred up pretty bad because the tear was at least 15 years old. I followed the doctors orders and maybe more importantly the physical therapists recommendations to the letter. And once I was given the green light to start EASING back into playing I did just that eased into it. Initially just the wife and I. Best shot from the short tees. I also maintained my physical therapy exercises at home increasing the weight slowly. It was a long tough road to recovery and to be honest it's still not 100%. It may never be. But at 60, what is?

I have gotten my distance back (300-325) and it doesn't hurt much after a round, and it no longer feels like my arm isn't connected. This year I expect to play competitively again.

Get a good surgeon and a good physical therapist, and do what they tell you. You're still young. Next year you'll be back at full steam.

Good luck.

300-325 a year after surgery. That's awesome. Good for you. Very encouraging. I'm feeling a lot better about it all today. (Not happy, just better). Tough when the weather here in Maryland has been so nice this week. All my buddies and my 2 boys out playing all the time. The guys I work with go play at lunch. Torture!!! Tough when it's your favorite thing to do in life. Except spend time with my darling wife. (Never know if she's reading this)

So bummed.
Been there done that. Had both my shoulders scoped. I'm older than you and it took me about 6 months to rehab. Actually disc golf is a great sport for rehabbing. Start slow and get your range back. Use the rubber bands/power bands or whatever you want to call them. I ain't lyin. It's gonna hurt like a beeyatch when the local wears off, but buck up little camper. Determination and consistency will win the day

Waiting to get into specialist. (Insurance issues.) Oh well. Tough watching everyone go play. Wah. Poor me. Tried a little lefty in a field today but it messes with my right shoulder some how. It was ugly. Gonna just rest everything another week and push to get MRI and Ortho apt quicker. Haven't played in 6 days. WITHDRAWAL
