Question: Hello Doctor,

I recently hurt my right shoulder. I'm experiencing pain while doing some movements. While I try to fold my hand backwards i'm not able to completely reach the neck. Recently visited a Ortho doc and i was told there is muscle tear which would take weeks heal. I'm not very much convinced with the treatment i'm taking now. Could you please guide me in this.

Brief Answer:
Muscle tear

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thanks for your query.

Muscle/ligament tear usually take 3 to 4 weeks to heal and painkiller tablets and ointments is the best treatment. I would suggest you continue with the treatment your doctor has prescribed and adequate rest to your shoulder will heal the tear faster. I can help you better if you can name the tablets and ointment he has given you.

I hope this answered your query. Looking forward.

With regards,

Brief Answer:
Normal x ray.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Sorry for the delay.

I have gone through your x ray and it is normal. So there is no doubt about fracture. A muscle strain/tear will heal slowly with time. Muscle tear severity cannot be seen on a xray. Do not wory it will heal by 1 month. Continue the medicines as and when required.

I hope this answered your query.
