Brief Answer:
You need arthroscopic examination.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

I have read your query.

If I am your treating doctor I would do your physical examination and would see your MRI scan for exact conformation of your problem, I will also do your diagnostic arthroscopic examination which is must.

So I advise you to visit orthopedic surgen andand discuss all that I have explained to you.

By doing alone yoga and physiotherapy will not help you as your age is young.

I hope it helps.

Thanks,

Brief Answer:
Physiotherapist needed.

Detailed Answer:
Ok myfriend,

Then you should visit physiotherapy centre having good reputation.

Physiotherapist will advise you certain exercises which will help you.

Still if you don't get relief then go for diagnosticarthroscopic at least.

I hope you got my point.

I had a cortisone shot for my shoulder. The doc ordered X-ray but I think an MRI would show more of any soft tissue damage. I suspect rotator cuff problems since this shoulder has given me problems for many years. Will results of the MRI be affected because of the cortisone injection?

I m using a Lidoderm patch for (light) shoulder pain. I had a rotator cuff tear surgery in Oct. 2013. At times I get pain in the shoulder (while exercising and/or playing tennis). Is Lidoderm the same as ibuprofen except it is in a patch form? Thanks for replying.
