    You can tell us a little more about your injury, what you can and cannot do, pain level, how it occurred in what position was your arm, any previous injuries... and then I can give you a best guess on how long it will take or if we can help you out on line. I agree if the physician indicates you need PT consult then do go. But if you describe things out, and answer a few questions along the way, then there is a possibility that you may not need a long PT course.

    I'm am not an expert but I have damaged both of my rotator cuffs and after 7 years they still give me problems. As a matter of fact, my left rotator that I damaged 6-7 years ago came back on strong and is killing me after feeling good for about a year. Get yourself checked out as rotator cuff problems can hang with you for a long time if not taken care of.

    kprtop good advice!

    Why though are you still having problems for 6-7 years? What does it feel like? It may be corrected by the expertise of the people on this site so if you are having some issues with your shoulder or any other body part, the advice you can obtain can be very worthwhile and can supplement any current program to prevent further injury or help heal an existing problem.

    Did you have to have complete rest to cure this or could you still train. I got diagnosed with this at a physio yesterday and she advises 1 year minimum off the weights!!! Not the answer I was looking for.

    As I am cutting at the moment I have decided to eliminate shoulder work from my workouts until August to give it a chance to rest.

    Your advice on this would be appreciated

    Youd have to elminate chest press movements and tricep pressing movements too, all use your shoulder muscles/joints

    I have got rid of all tricep exercises anyway because the reason I went to the physio was for an elbow problem not my shoulder (she spotted the shoulder problem from the buckled way I was standing lol). My elbow hurts on full extension or on any tricep specific exercise. Since I do shoulders and tri's on the same day I had planned to drop that day altogether and put in an extra cardio session instead until August.

    So you think I need to drop the presses? Anything else I need to drop?? I am currently doing Dougs Mega Cutting Routine with the tri-sets etc.

    Also Is August realistic for getting back into it or am I looking at more time off.
