Sounds like you have a rotator cuff problem... have you been to see an Orthopedist or just chiropractors?
Chiropractors, by their training, are not folks who should be seeing you for a shoulder problem...
I would assume the MRI was ordered by your primary care physician or by an orthopedist?
Are you there?
Will be back with you when you are able to respond to the above.
The Doctor that provided the cortisone said it was not be the rotator cuff. I have not seen the Orthopedist The MRI is my request at my dollar. It was a direction I wanted to follow since nothing else was working.
what kind of doctor did a cortisone shot if not an orthopedist?
Everything you are describing sounds like a rotator cuff injury.
The exact doctor you need to see is an orthopedic surgeon. Chiropractors are not medical doctors, they are doctors of chiropractic 'medicine' but do not perform surgery or prescribe medicine.
I think the MRI is a good idea, but when you get the results you need to see an orthopedist.
I THINK IF YOU WILL READ THIS YOU WILL UNDERSTAND WHY I THINK THIS SOUNDS LIKE A ROTATOR CUFF PROBLEM.
