Elliot- It would seem to me that if you have minimal pain, minimal functional deficit, and no impingement on the spinal cord, that there would be little indication for surgery at this time. I think...

I saw the picture of Sage doing the Sotts press today, so I thought I would try it. Initially, I couldn't even get the bar off my back while in the hole. I think I was pitching forward due to tight...

Lincoln,

What is the ratio between what you can push press from in front compared to from behind? I have tried the technique you've mentioned, but I'm so weak with a wide grip behind my neck...

The world record for the mile is 3:43, but a mile is 1600 meters, not 2k. A quarter mile is 402 meters, not 500. This will change your calculations somewhat.

Erik,

I'm an orthopod, and here are my 2 cents. Don't pursue surgery if you're happy with the way things are, or a least seem to be on the road to recovery. If you have full range of motion,...

If the long head of the biceps is truly subluxed on an MRI, then you have either torn part of subscapularis, or the coracohumeral ligament. These will not typically heal with time. You can try a...
