    This is from the Times of India today

    Shah Rukh said he was so injury prone that "I know every part of my body; I have metal pieces in parts of my body. My interaction with physios began from the age of 15. I was playing soccer at Delhi's Ambedkar Stadium and had a lower back problem. An old gentleman, Dr Abbott, treated me. I think he was orthopedics guy. I don't think there were many physios then. That was the end of my professional sporting career. I would have preferred it to the one in showbiz. Now my son is into athletics and soccer and I think he will need the back-up of physiotherapy, "Shah Rukh exhorted the physios to become affordable to all sections of the society.

    Shah Rukh said in India "we are used to medicine of hakims and vaids but the art was lost and the west took over. Still, invasive therapy is not the order of the day. Physiotherapy for most is only massage. I love massage though," he added smiling

    Shah Rukh, back from a a shoot the US for 'My Names is Khan', is to go for shoulder arthroscopy for a tear in the supraspinatous muscle in the shoulder.

    They are matching the medical opinion he got in Los Angeles with the one in Mumbai. Shah Rukh isn't so happy with pre and post-operative care in India.

    Asked if he would have to be choosy about roles in view of his injury, Shah Rukh said, "Most of my films are action packed and I do the stunts myself. So I will have to be choosy. The current film has less action except for a flood scene to be shot in India. That will be put off till April."

    Re: Shah Rukh says he will have shoulder arthroscopy for torn muscle

    I looked this up on a medical site to find out just what that is:

    Shoulder arthroscopy is a type of surgery that uses a small camera (arthroscope) inserted through a small incision to examine or repair the tissues inside or around your shoulder joint.

    The surgeon makes a small incision, about one-quarter inch (0.25") long, near the shoulder joint. A small camera (arthroscope) is then inserted into the joint. The camera is attached to a video monitor to allow the surgeon to see inside the joint.

    Unlike knee arthroscopy, most people are asleep during the surgery. Therefore, you will be unable to watch the video monitor. A nerve block may be used to numb your shoulder and arm to help reduce pain after surgery.

    A salt solution (saline) is pumped into the shoulder to expand the joint. This helps the surgeon see the joint and helps control any bleeding.

    The surgeon will look around the entire joint to check the cartilage, tendons, and ligaments of the shoulder. If damaged tissues need to be repaired, the surgeon will make 1 to 3 additional small incisions to insert other instruments. These may include a blunt hook to pull on tissues, a shaver to remove damaged or unwanted tissues, and a burr to remove bone.

    In addition to working on the shoulder joint, the surgeon often places the camera in the space above the rotator cuff tendons (the subacromial space). The surgeon can evaluate the area above the rotator cuff, clean out inflamed or damaged tissue, remove a bone spur, and fix a rotator cuff tear.

    At the end of the surgery, the fluid is drained from the shoulder, the small incisions are closed, and a dressing is applied. Your surgeon will probably take pictures of the procedure from the video monitor to show you what was found and what was done.

    wow... i had a feeling that his shoulder pain was going to lead to something serious.... just like the knee, the shoulder is also a very sensitive and delicate area... i hope that all goes well for him and i wish him a speedy recovery.

    Re: Shah Rukh says he will have shoulder arthroscopy for torn muscle

    can I just say "ouch"?

    Here's info about the muscle that is reportedly injured:


    Supraspinatus muscle

    ACTION: abducts the humerus (lifts the arm)
    REFERRAL: lateral shoulder and arm

    COMMENTS: This muscle runs under the clavicle, attaching to the top of the humerus. It pulls the arm out to the side. The supraspinatus and deltoid are the only two muscles that lift the arm to the side (the trapezius helps to stabilize and helps after 90 degrees). If strained, it can mimic subacromial bursitis. To work the muscle belly, you must work through the trapezius. This is one of the 4 rotator cuff muscles.

    ROTATOR CUFF MUSCLES: (acronym SITS) Subscapularis, Infraspinatus, Teres minor, Supraspinatus

    Since this muscle is the one he uses to do his signature arms outstretched pose, I hope the surgery is a complete success, the recovery is quick, and he's back in form real soon!
