      I am wondering if there any chiropractors on the slaptear.com list who can share how or if they were able to return to manual adjusting after SLAP repair surgery and rehab?
      3/51 Bilateral VIII C.N. complete neurectomy
      2/60 Failed Supratentorial electrotherapy w/subsequent pancerebral resection
      2/89 Bilateral aqueous humor drainage w/complete retinectomy
      3/02 Quadralateral proximal extremity resection from gestational thalidomide exposure

      I'm not a chiropractor, but how about the opinion of a PT student who has been doing manual work on the spine since January?

      I had surgery in October. Depending on the size of the person, it is still hard (and occasionally a little painful) to hold and move extremities around like I need to. As for times when I need to put a lot of my body weight through my arms, I just have to put a little more weight through the \"good arm.\"

      It's getting better though, and within the past couple of weeks I've definitely noticed that certain things are getting easier.

      Hope that helps a little!

      Thanks! I appreciate the input. Hopefully you are young without underlying arthritic change in order to sustain your career. I am board-certified in chiropractic orthopedics, have been for 18 years, work closly with the ortho community and agree that SLAP lesions are not only of very low incidence but very difficult to address, at least upon clinical eval. MRI alone is not so great; MR arthrogram is better. I have had 2 ortho evals both entertaining a positive MR arthrogram and (clincial)capsular instability so I am expecting not so great news after arthroscopic eval/repair as joint arthrosis is evident on plain films. And by the way Andy, I am very disappointed to see the trashy advertisments about shoulder \"specialists\" within chiropractic on this website pretending to be the \"go-to\" providers for a SLAP tear preying upon unsuspecting patients when in my opinion, they have no formalized training to recognize such pathology. Enough ranting. I am scheduled with Kerlan-Jobe tomorrow and hope for surgical repair within a week or two.
