How long for a torn tendon in the shoulder to heal, If Ever?


I tore my tendon throwing a football harder than I could handle according to the doctor.

How can you tell if your patellar tendon is ruptured?


I have pain and a palpable defect on the tendon, however I can extend my knee fully and bear weight on the affected leg. How do I know if it is ruptured? What can I do if it is?
----------

Injury or over use of a joint or tendon can result in pain redness, heat and inflammation of the bursa, a condition known as bursitis which often develops quickly, over just a few days. Apply ice or cold packs for 10 minute periods, one an hour or as often as you can for 48 hours. Continue applying ice (15 to 20 minutes, 3 times a day) as long as it relieves the pain. Call you doctor if you have signs of damage to the nerves or blood vessels, such as numbness, tingling, a pin-and-needles sensation below the injury, or pale or bluish skin. If your knee is red , hot swollen, or painful to touch. If you are limping, or if pain does not improve within 2 days. For more information go to wwwwebmd.com.  (+ info)

What is this treatment for the patellar tendon called?


I went to the doctor today and he numbed my patellar tendon to see if that reduced the pain and he said if that worked then they could do some kind of steroid therapy to help fix that. However it was not just steroid shots it was some other kind of therapy and I cannot remember the name of it. Does anyone out there know?

Thanks!
