    What does my mri scan results mean

    what does MRI results mean

    Moderate degenerative change to the ACJ is seen. Tiny
    effusion within the subacromial subdeltoid bursa is noticed.
    Small effusion within the sheath of the long head of the
    biceps tendon as well as within the subcoracoid bursa is
    identified as well. Features of slight supraspinatus
    tendinopathy are noticed. No tear seen at this point. Intact
    infraspinatus and subscapularis. There is a small
    subcondylar cyst visualised medial to the greater tuberosity
    that measures 3.4mm in long axis. Normal labrum. Frozen shoulder

    This sounds like a question you should be asking a doctor, not random people on an Internet message board. Just sayin'.

    The shoulder area is very complicated. It includes several bones coming together along with a multitude of ligament and muscle connections and moves through a wide range of motion. It is really hard to answer if you don't have a detailed understanding of these structures.

    I can decode some of it. The ACJ is the acromioclavicular joint. It is where your clavicle (collar bone) attaches to the scapula (shoulder blade) at the top of your shoulder. Bursas are fluid filled sacks that provide cushioning between moving parts, such as between tendons and bones.

    The supraspinatus, infraspinatus, and subscapularis are three of the four muscles known as your rotator cuff. These muscles serve to stabilize and rotate the shoulder (i.e they hold the head of your arm bone in its socket). That you have no tear in any of those muscles is a good thing.

    The labrum is the fibrocartilage ring that encircles the head of your arm bone. It partially forms the socket the arm bone sits in. This being normal is also good.

    The greater tuberosity (also called the greater tubercle) refers to the upper outside part of your arm bone. Subcondylar cyst is above my paygrade but seems to often be associated with osteoarthritis. Frozen shoulder is the condition where stiffness/pain make it difficult to properly move the shoulder joint.

    So what is this telling you? Well, that you have at least moderate damage to several structures of the shoulder. What the MRI isn't going to tell you is why. It could be an overuse issue, injury related, osteoarthritis, etc. or some combination of those things. To determine the why and to prescribe a recuperative program will require a doctor with full knowledge of your medical history and activities, along with, possibly, a variety of other tests/examinations.
