 Hi Group
 
I've recently developed a torn rotator cuff in my lead shoulder (right, I'm a left hander).  The info I have received so far, I will have to live with it.  The best I can swing without agraviting the shoulder, is the "9 to 3"  drill.  In fact It hurts more going back then forward.
The worst part of the problem, is the shoulder continously wakes me up several times at night.
I have taken a month break from golfing and other serious exercise, but the problem still continues.
 
Does anyone have any suggestion, what I can to continue golfing?
 
Thanks for the help and sympathy
 
Joe

Joe,
  That really stinks!   I don't have any advice.  But, I definitely wish you all the best.  Please keep us posted on your healing progress. 

  Hope you're back on the Links soon!

Ray

Why do you have to live with it? I would opt for surgery.

At my age  (75), generally if you still have some movement with the arm.  As well as the high pain level after the surgery,and long term recovery.   The local medical profession, doesnt recommend surgery. 
BTW, watching an interview, with a Doctor from  Pennsylvania, that was also his recommendation.

Is it a complete or partial tear?
Is there a reactive subacromial/ subdeltoid bursitis?....If so, an ultrasound guided steroid injection into the bursa may give you some relief.
Also, physio is a non-surgical option. This will help the healthy rotator cuff muscles/tendons compensate for the injured region.

On Sept 28th, 09 I will have ultra-sound done to confirm, the diagnosis.   In the meantime I have been working on physio exercises, to exercise the balance. 
Thanks for the reply.
