It's not really in the area but Doug deitzel is the best shoulder doc in Michigan. Msu sports medicine. He replaced my shoulder in 07 and I have not had a single problem since.

It would be worth the extra drive.

Detroit is actually further from me than lansing. I wouldn't be opposed to MSU at all. I am not sure if I need surgery, but for 3 years (in all reality 10 years) I have been fighting nagging pain/injuries with a few more serious "events" mixed in.

It's a different part of the same shoulder each and every time.

A few different friends of mine have gone to him and had great results. I'd highly recommend him.

Well I would recommend him before anyone else, he deals with sports injuries. He will get you back up and going before no time.

Have you tried anything like a massage therapist or chiropractor to see of they could "fix" you? Or is it past that?

physical therapy should be your first choice, I would definitely try to avoid surgery.

I actually have a chiropractor that I trust quite well, I haven't seen him yet for my shoulder, it's a consideration though currently.

I've done over 6 months of physical therapy in the last 2 years.

The PT always makes it feel better initially, but to be honest I haven't been exactly pleased with the results of the physical therapy, nor the aggressiveness in which they have treated the shoulder. This is why I would like to see a shoulder specialist and discuss therapy/options with someone other than my general doctor.

I would like to avoid surgery at all costs, which is why I have tried PT multiple different times. The "pain" seems to roam around to different areas all through the shoulder.

This all stemmed from an injury back in 2003.

Recently.

About 2 years ago it was rotator cuff related (according to doc and PT), after PT it felt better, but then I had neck/back pain on that same side. The shoulder itself also never felt 100%. But it was better, so I dealt with it.

The next time I couldn't stand the pain it was in the trap and shoulder blade area. PT with teh same results, better, but not 100%

The next time it was back in the shoulder joint itself, but more of an AC joint issue. Again, PT with the same results, better but not 100%.

I just finished PT again on December 31st. This last time I had a horrible knot in my back between my shoulder blade and spine, AC joint pain, along with the standard Rotator Cuff pain. For the first two weeks of january I felt pretty good, thought maybe i'd be good to go. Then the very back of the shoulder Delt, tricep, lat area has gone to shit.

So, like I said, I'd like to see a Dr. who specializes in sports medicine/shoulders so my left arm can become functional again.

Have you had an MRI yet? If so bring that to the specialist you find. His/Her interpretation my be different than the one given by a Radiologist.

My doctor has never felt it was bad enough to do an MRI. I would like to have the shoulder specialist order it himself performed at a location that he trusts so that the images and results are consistent.

I will not do anything further until I can get an MRI.

I am kinda trying to not go back to my doc, although he has been great throughout the years (i've seen him for over 20 years) he is letting me down a bit with his lack of concern for my shoulder. I have tried explaining to him that I am not your average desk jockey/couch potatoe and that I lead a fairly active lifestyle and need my shoulder to be repaired (whether that means PT or surgery or whatever) and healed up fully.

my right shoulder went pop then rip as i was putting the spring back on the kickstand of my motorcycle. after a year of dealing with the pain, i finally saw my doc today. he sent me for an x-ray and made me an appointment with a specialist. i have no faith in the x-ray but it's a start and we'll go from there.
people never realize how much they use something until it's messed up. hope all works out for you.

Quit masturbating so furiously and you won't keep re-injuring it.
