subscapularis rotator cuff injury

Any one been diagnosed with this? I suffer from psoriatic arthritis and had assumed my shoulder pain was linked. But now the doc thinks the shoulder problem is the above. Hes mentioned pain relief and possibly surgery. Its become very limiting. Husband has had to help fasten my bra which makes me laugh as 40 years ago he was more interested in undoing it!

That's quite a specific diagnosis there, but lots of patients with psoriatic arthritis have tendon problems, although problems with the rotator cuff (the group of tendons around the shoulder, of which subscapularis is just one) is sadly more common with age even in people without previous joint problems.

Have you had any physio?

Not as yet. Doc tried several tests in the surgery (Empty can and bear hug!)
The one I just couldnt do was lift off - placing my hand palm up on the small of my back and trying to lift it up - I just couldnt! Ive to go back for a scan then we will move
on from there apparently.
Its just so annoying!

From the clues you have given about your age (40 years with husband etc), then I suspect that surgery is less likely to be helpful (rotator cuff dysfunction is very common, and even if there is a tear, it is unlikely to be able to be repaired), and physio ought to be the first step in any case. It might also be worth talking to your rheumatologist about this.

OP. My Wife slipped and fell in the bath in late 2017 and aggravated an existing shoulder injury.
It became so bad she was crying with the pain. Physio was impossible even though she tried.
In the end and after an X Ray, MRI and Ultrasound she had 3 steroid injections which did very little.
The operation to clean out the whole area and also to remove some bone worked well though.

I also had to help her dress and even wash and do her hair!

I have had major issues with both rotator cuffs.
I am very active and am in the gym alot.

I have had loads of physio and always do my exercises as I was advised an op would a) not necessarily work and b) definitely end my gym sessions!

So I continue with all my rehab exercises even though for now they're both ok!

O think surgery should always be the last option - especially for shoulders as they are soo complicated to fix.

Good luck but defo find a good physio

As above. What we did was find the best shoulder Consultant who also did NHS work.
Saw him at Spire for all the tests and scans etc then got on his NHS list.

Some say this is exploiting the system. I couldn't care less because it saved the NHS having to do the MRI etc etc..

Edit. All my research showed the Reading Shoulder Unit is the best in the Country.

You're lucky you have a partner to do up your bra. I live alone and just brushing my hair became an issue.

I've had surgery twice on both shoulders and can tell you that it is the worse pain I have ever had (and I've had 10 surgeries now )... so surgery really should be your last option. Only if you have an MRI that shows a bone spur or massive tear would I go for surgery straight away (both of those just get worse with physio).

Good luck OP.
