[p]Has anyone ever tried ProLoTherapy for snapping scapula? Before I have surgery I was considering the less invasive prolotherapy, but I would like to hear from people that have actually tried it themselves. I am not anywhere near this doctor using prolotherapy but I might even travel to Chicago if I thought it might work?

[p]Hello all- I am new to this forum, but am glad to see that there are others out there who know what I am going through. I am 27/F and have been suffering from shoulder pain for YEARS. I was a softball player most of my life, so I understand that wear and tear has a big effect on it. I had surgery in 03 to remove part of my clavicle, and was OK for a bit. Throughout the years my range of motion has decreased drastically, along with chronic pain, popping, and grinding, not being able to sleep on my right side for about 3 years. I've now been to 2 different ortho. in the past couple of months, had an MRI, had an MR Arthrogram, xrays- both doctors are saying that I have a snapping scapula. Luckily the Dr. that I am seeing now is the original dr. who took care of my first surgery, and has also diagnosed me with the snapping scapula. Before putting me through surgery he wants me to first have an MRI of the spine, followed by tests to check nerve function. I just recieved a cortizone shot in my scapula on Friday. (that was fun!) Does anyone know why I would have to have my spine checked? Is it something that could have been effected by my shoulder? [/p]

JP Warner at Harvard is excellent. You can't find a more experienced shoulder surgeon in the US.

Hi, how are you. I went to see Dr, Morgan regarding my snapping scapula problem. He told me he did not do that type of surgery. Dr. Morgan also has an associate named Dr. Kalman. I went to see him two.These doctors are the best vI have ever went to. They are both brilliant.
