Shoulder Pain For Pitcher

Postby stevekep » Thu Oct 13, 2005 8:02 pm

Clinical diagnosis was SLAP tear. MRI shows healthy rotator cuff and labrum. MRI shows a number of cortical and subcortical cysts along the posterolateral margin of the numeral head. What are these? Can they cause pain when throwing?

The cysts usually ocur where the rotator cuff tendon attaches to the bone where is starting to degenerate at that insertion point. They don't cause pain in themselves but are an indicator of cuff disease related often to overhead activities. Usually it is the SLAP lesion that caused the pain, fatigue and weakness when throwing.
