Patient : I have just had a MRI and X-ray of my R Shoulder. Xray shows a sliver of calcification most likely in my infraspinatus and my MRI shows a partial thickness tear (2mm in width extending longitudinally 6mm)of the anterior fibres of the supraspinatus as well as overlying subacrominal bursitis. Is it likely i will end up having surgery or will rest and physio fix this injury I occured from a fall 9 months ago?
