Re: Shoulder Injury/ Painful arc syndrome

I had a tendon separate entirely from the bone. It was re-attached via surgery.

I can only recommend keeping as much range of motion as your surgery will allow. I was completely immobile for seven weeks and it took months to regain the range of motion I lost over those seven weeks. I was also very happy that I got my physical therapy at a sports medicine clinic. They were much more aware of what it would take for me to get back to aikido, rather than just back to normal life.

Good luck!

Scott
