Had a patient this morning with a partial rotator cuff tear in her shoulder. If she has surgery which is what the surgeon recommends she will have to go do post surgical rehab. I told her why not do the rehab without the surgery. It will likely heal WITHOUT surgery.
I have avoided a knee surgery meniscus tear, partial tear. I used magnets. 1 month later no surgery. Shoulder blade fracture. Emergency Room doctor said I needed surgery. I said NO! Never had that surgery either.
