» Rehab for Rotator Cuff Tear (Go to post)09-08-2013 @ 17:45 
You should get the advice of an Orthopaedic Shoulder surgeon asap. Some (most) cuff tears can be repaired and do much better. If they are going to be repaired, it should be done soon as they do better.

Worth doing if its only your gp who has seen it

Christ! The guy pulling out a handgun and shooting at something/someone at 1.48 is a bit scary. How were all these filmed? Police cars?

Strong contraction of the muscle (usually heavy loading or trauma), usually while lengthening/eccentrically contracting. Increased risk or tendon/musculotendinous junction tears with anabolic steroid use, unclear whether this is direct weakening of tendons or just more rapid increase in muscle strength without compensatory increase in tendon strength is unclear

Agree with the above, would love to see Klokov take the 105s though as he is always the second place man.

Where you working mate? I just qualified as well, starting on A&E in Harrogate. I wholly agree, far more important and less life-sapping than ePortfolio! I like the use of 'written in retrospect' as well!

I don't think he has rheumatoid arthritis. Far more likely to osteoarthritis, a wear-and-tear condition. Diet may offer some benefit but it won't necessarily fix things - once the cartilage covering the knee joint is gone, it is gone.

You are quite young to have severe arthritis but its not impossible. Have your knees had a lot of wear in the past (manual labour job, kneeling a lot, footballer, weightlifting etc)?

I would try not to take ibuprofen every day as it can make your stomach lining more vulnerable to stomach acid and cause ulcers or bleeding. Paracetamol is a much better option to take regularly - you can take 2 tablets up to 4 times a day. Ibuprofen is better for short term use only.

Icing the knees after training, using neoprene sleeves during training and warm packs the rest of the day can help with pain also. Sports massage on your quadriceps may be helpful as trigger points in the muscles may contribute to knee pain.

Has your GP suggested an X-ray of the knees, or an appointment with an orthopaedic surgeon? It would be worth enquiring about these.

It's the most infuriating thing, the way people assume that only a few people dope/cheat/whatever at the top levels of sport. It's like with Armstrong in the Tour. OF COURSE he was using all sorts, just like everyone else. The logic of people's argument doesn't make sense. If only a select few dope, then presumably it doesn't confer a massive advantage as the other 'clean' athletes can stil be competitive. So why dope at all? The fact is that everyone does. There's no way people can hit these times/weights/whatever without using some drugs. It is absolutely endemic. It's so irritating when people say things like, 'Bolt is so amazing, I just hope he isn't doping'. How stupid are you?

If sport were my profession, I would do everything to make sure I came out on top. If you aren't willing to, there are plenty of others who are, who will supercede you.

» Pulled bicep or minor tear? (Go to post)27-04-2011 @ 20:49 
The long head of biceps tears quite commonly off its attachment to the scapula, just above the glenohumeral joint. If you have done that, it will hurt in your shoulder and the biceps will be a funny shape as Terry has mentioned, something we call the 'popeye' sign. If yours is sore when you contract the biceps but not a funny shape or bruised it's more likely to be some inflammation of the tendon without frank rupture, or possibly a pull or partial tear of the muscle belly itself.

Without having a look at you it is difficult to say so go and see a doctor.

This may be of some use
