On my first day out for the season around 2 weeks ago now i tore my rotator cuff on a really light fall when i put my arm out, it was weird and it wasnt even a hard fall.

As of yesterday it still hurt when i did certain things, but not so bad and now tonight theyre calling for 10 cm of snow overnight at my local hill.

10 cm is basically the most snow we ever really get here in southern ontario, so do i go tmrw even though my shoulder probably isnt 100% healed.

One point of view is that i shouldnt miss the 10cm but if i hurt it worse who knows how long ill be out for.

If you tore your rotator cuff, it is going to stay that way until you have surgery. I've got a slight tear in my left rotator cuff. It is not going to get better unless I choose to go under the knife. So basically it's up to you if you can deal with the pain or not. Of course you could make it worse too, but that will probably just motivate you to go see the doc sooner.

I hurt mine on the early trip last year, think it was just damaged. Was considering riding in a sling on the second trip but it had pretty much healed. You don't want to make it worse, I passed out one night from the pain after a hard day at work fitting ceiling speakers.

How do you know it's your rotator cuff that's torn?

Yeah it's more likely a pulled muscle in the rotator cuff than a full on tear.

I've had several of these injuries and they hurt like hell. I remember going to grab a burger out of a bag a month later and I just about keeled over when my shoulder popped...

I now ride with upper body armour to help prevent some of the injuries. Oh and I would say go enjoy it. Good snow days in Ontarible are few and far between, so take advantage of them!

Any popping or clicking?
Pain at night?
Do you sleep on your side? Does it hurt when you sleep on it? Does it hurt if you dont sleep on it?

i went to a chiro/doctor what ever they called.
He said i had a minor tear, most likely in the supraspinatus (part of rotator cuff).
This was 2 weeks ago and 3 days, the last time i felt bad pain was yesterday petting my dog i just felt it really sharp. Its weird how you can carry stuff, no pain, do a lot of stuff but one wrong movement and holy shit.

However its looking good as today i havent felt pain once, so if we get the full 10 cm im goin tmrw.

BTW: Sorry to the mods, i totally forgot about the slam section.

What i'm getting at is approach to shoulders changes everyday cause they're figuring out new stuff, actually with the whole body it changes everyday.
It could even be sub acromial impingment or something, thus all the questions
