It's time I had my shoulder looked at so need recommendations. Anyone had experience with Andrew Cooper, John Edwards or Phil Davidson? Thanks

Luigi,

Have you had your shoulder looked at by a physical therapist yet? I only ask this because, often, musculoskeletal issues can be safely and effectively resolved by seeing a PT at a lower cost than by seeing a physician (or surgeon.) I don't know off-hand if you have direct access to PT in your state, but if you are interested, message me and I will check on it.

Has an office at TOSH and in Park City. 90% rotator cuff tear, bicep tenodesis, sub-acromial decompression. My shoulder is now BOMBER.

i work at the university of utah ortho center, and we have some good shoulder docs here. Dr. Robert Tashjian is an excellent surgeon, specializes in shoulder and elbow. If you are looking for a sports med non operative doctor to start out with before seeing a surgeon, dr. dave petron is also great, although both usually run behind so expect a wait. 801 587 7109 to schedule appt.

No offense to the thought of seeing a PT first, but my experience is that PT don't diagnose, they help treat. They need a rx from a md first. My advise is to see a doc. We often refer people down to Metcalf at TOSH when insurance issues arise. He is excellent as well.

I have been to metcalf recently as well. I think any of the TOSH docs that specialize in shoulders will likely do what you need. The PT was more important, although the cortisone shot from the doc knocked the pain down for a couple of weeks.

I am 100% now with little pain.

I have been seen by a PT/rolfer (which I think is a great combo). He really helped with the adhesive capsulitis but after a year of following his exercise regimen I continue to have some obvious limitations and need to take it to the next step. Thanks for the feedback.

Your Lady couldn't heal you, Paintrain?
+1 for Metcalf and Edwards.

Most guys who do shoulders also do knees and hips. Most of the time you'll get sent to PT and your experience will vary greatly depending on who you end up with.

When I do my exercises, my shoulders feel great. When I don't they feel bad.

Scapular stabilization helps a lot for most climbers I know. Good luck.
