User :   I have had shoulder pain for about 3 to 4 months. My doctor sent me for an MRI about a week ago. He is currently out of town, so I have not been back to see him yet. I picked up my MRI report today. I am wondering what I can expect next; surgery, phys therapy, nothing at all?
The report says (paraphrased):
- nondisplaced tear of the posterior aspect of the glenoid labrum and ending from about posterior margin of the bicipital labral complex posteriorly downward to about 4:00 position of glenoid labrum.

- rotator cuff intact and unremarkable

- significant degenerative changes of the acromioclavicular joint with marked thickening and adema of capsule and marrow edema on both sides of joint.
