Boston Herald—April 19, 2016
Beat reporter Evan Drellich writes on Red Sox third baseman Pablo Sandoval’s recent shoulder situation that has landed him on the disabled list. Evan spoke with Joshua S. Dines, MD, a sports medicine surgeon at Hospital for Special Surgery, about different potential reasons why Sandoval could have experienced soreness in his shoulder.
"There's a thing called frozen shoulder," said Dr. Dines, who has not examined Sandoval. Another possibility, he explained, is calcific tendinitis, which is when there’s a calcification in the rotator cuff that could have been there for years.
Both conditions can usually be healed by non-surgical means, starting with a cortisone injection, said Dr. Dines.
