Supraspinatus/Infraspinatus strain

I strained the supraspinatus/infraspinatus around my right rotator cuff, doing a workout with snatches, OHS, and burpees.

My doctor was busy so I got stuck with a nurse practitioner who is completely biased against exercise in general I think. An example of his ignorance - "the problem is people see powerlifters like Arnold Schwarzennegger doing snatches and they think they can do it, or they see people running and htey want to do it, but they simply can't. You can't do those things unless you are a professional athlete in those sports." Really, Where do you think said professional athletes come from?

Ok - off of my soap box - the dumbass wouldn't give me a referral to physical therapy because he said there is nothing to do but let it rest completely for 4-6 weeks. I've been researching MWOD for external rotation stretches and mobility issues, and have regained most of my mobility. Any suggestions for building up strength so this type of thing doesn't happen again?

Re: Supraspinatus/Infraspinatus strain

If you actually have a strained RC then something like diesel crew shoulder rehab routine would be decent.

If it's not then well you really should've gotten diagnosed by an orthopedic doc.

Generally, you should not go to the ER or wherever your GP is cause you can get NPs instead for problems like that unless it's really really bad and you need immediate attention. Otherwise, always go to ortho first.. and try to get into physical therapy

Re: Supraspinatus/Infraspinatus strain

Thanks Steven. I've never heard of that before I'll check it out.

As far as the choice of Doc's - I went to my primary care doc because I don't really have a choice. As active duty military, I have to see the general practitioner doc to get a referral for anything else unless I go to an ER. For some reason, this one day I couldn't get in to see my regular doctor who pretty much gives out referrals the patient asks for and got stuck with the idiot described above. Active duty mil = free healthcare at the expense of being able to go to a specialist directly. My regular doctor is an avid runner so understands the occasional athletic injury.

Re: Supraspinatus/Infraspinatus strain

Ah, that sucks. Is it possible to go back to him to see if you can get a referral or call him directly?

Its actually going to be easier to get an appointment with my regular doctor and the referral from her. Already got the appt that.
