Torn Tendon

Posted , 2 users are following.

I had a bad fall on 6th. June and dislocated my right shoulder, it was relocated on the 7th and I regularly attended Hospital then on the 23rd. July I had a scan and was told I had a torn Tendon, for the last two weeks I have been having phyisio therapy but no matter how much I ask no one will tell me if this will eventually repair on it's own I am 74, can anyone possibly give me the answer I need I would be very grateful----Bert

    Hello Bert,

    As far as I`m aware and have been told by doctors in the past is that the tendon wont heal itself. What physio does is it strengthens the other muscles and tendons around the injured one to compensate for it. Good luck with the physio. Takes time to heal. But should help.

    Kind Regards,

    James.
