I can answer questions about both conservative and post-operative rehabilitation for UPPER extremity injuries. These include but are not limited to: fractures, tendon repairs, tendon transfers, nerve repairs, lacerations, tenolysis procedures, TFCC injuries, repetitive motion disorders, reconstructive procedures. I have an advanced knowledge of UPPER extremity anatomy and industrial rehabilitation. I have extensive splinting skills for injuries to the upper extremity. Although not a physician or a surgeon I have worked closely with world renowned upper extremity specialists for over 10 years. I can give general information on what some of the most common upper extremity surgeries involve. I can reference those procedures as well. PLEASE DON'T ASK ME QUESTIONS ABOUT ANYTHING OTHER THAN THE NECK, SHOULDER, ARM/HAND. I'M NOT QUALIFIED AND KNOW ABSOLUTELY ZERO ABOUT BACKS/HIPS/KNEES/ANKLES/ETC. THANK YOU!!!
10+ years working closely with orthopedic and hand surgeons and their patients. I have treated patients with small lacerations to major reconstructive procedures. My knowledge base includes both conservative and post-operative rehab protocols and care for upper extremity injuries. I have treated patients all the way from day 1 post-op to return-to-work status.

Probably tendonitis. If not an acute injury where you heard a pop or felt a sharp pain, it shouldn't be a tendon rupture or tear. I would look into bicipital tendonitis or supraspinatus tendonitis
Simple case of doing too much after 7 months out of the gym. Muscles respond to stress but when over stressed they become "damaged" temporarily until rest and healing can occur. This is the same reason
Sorry for the delay in my response. You could have sprained a ligament in which certain things can be done to rest the tissue and allow for healing. An exam from an orthopedic physician would be needed
Yes, diabetes can cause neuropathy and affect the nerves. I really can't say how long it should take for things to improve considering this. Between the diabetes, medications, and TENS unit it's tough
Interesting question. Not sure I've ever heard of this one. Well a TENS machine does stimulate nerves and shouldn't normally cause problems. However, 2 years of tens use will probably desensitize the
