Completely torn...will BFST help
« on: January 07, 2023, 08:45:15 PM »
This is my recent diagnosis:

"Supraspinatus and most of the anterior mid-infraspinatus tendon are completely torn and retracted. Humeral head abuts the acromion, consistent with chronic sinus rotator cuff tear of all of the superior rotator cuff. No fluid in the gap region or in the subacromial subdeltoid bursa.

Small portion of the posterior rotator cuff intact"

Besides the usual "increased blood flow helps", how much can it help? Two opinions are the surgery is high risk for not being able to repair my shoulder so they're advising PT (hope for the best). What could I expect from BFST in terms of helping with any kind of recovery and pain relief?

In regards to the BFST and its benefits for your mentioned injury. The BFST will help aid in soft tissue recovery, though would require blood flow between the two sections. Even if their is a complete tear however, there is still benefits from its use. You want to ensure a majority of swelling and inflammation has reduced prior to use. Doing so, and applying the BFST prior to any activity like PT will help stimulate blood flow in a similar effect to stretching, without risking some of the reinjury possibilities stretching and other pre-workouts can cause.
