elbow tendonitis related to shoulder injury

Dr Stoll, I had a grade IV ac separation in my right shoulder 2 years ago and had a ligament transfer operation. A lot of physical therapy. 9 months ago I was diagnosed with arthritis in both ends of the clavicle. 4 months ago I developed major tendonitis in my right arm, minor in the left. I hadn't done any strenuous, repetitive or out of the ordinary to cause this. My question is this all related? Did the separation cause the tendonitis? I had been told after the shoulder injury that this was a progressive injury and would cause residual problems. Thank you so much, Paul Peterzell

Hi, Paul.

It is likely that your original injury and surgery is why you had the tendonitis first on that side. HOWEVER, it would not explain why you now have it on the other side.

The common demomenator would be total body bracing and dealing with THAT would do you the most good.

Start with the archives about bracing and then, if you still have questions, write again.

Dr. Stoll, Thank you so much for your answer. I do want to clarify that I had a Grade III, Type IV separation. Not a Type IV. Also I would like to know is it possible that the tendonitis on the opposite side was caused because it is having to do so much more work? It is working twice as hard now as before.Thanks again, Paul

Hi, Paul.

I pose a question. Why is is that some athletes never seem to get injured and others are always injured???

BRACING!

Walt
