intrasubstance supraspinatus tendon tear
An ultrasound of my right shoulder reported "small intrasubstance supraspinatus tendon tear. Subacromial bursitis."
After massage, osteopathy and stretching exercises failed to ease the pain, I had cortisione injection. I started to feel a little less pain but after about 1 month, the pain is all back again. I would appreciate any advice as the pain and lack of normal arm movement without pain is really stopping me from everyday tasks. Please help as I'm happy to give anything a go at this stage!
